Patti Smith

Patti Smith had a photo show up at the Anna Schwarz gallery. It was about the death of her friend, the photographer Robert Maplethorpe. Patti liked the idea of the Children’s Choice Awards and asked to me them. So that’s what happened. She talked about her work, what it takes to be a rock star and cautioned against being a arrogant VIP (a problem some jury members are struggling with).
