“We wanted the book to be a sacred object – sacred for people who really love Patti,” photographer Lynn Goldsmith told AnOther earlier this month of her new book, Before Easter After, which she has co-authored with Patti Smith. The beautiful book documents a particular period of Smith’s life, from when she fell off a stage while performing in Tampa, Florida, in 1977 – a moment that Goldsmith captured, and is shown in the book – and through her recovery, which led to the production of The Patti Smith Group’s album Easter. Full of original poetry and lyrics by Smith, Before Easter After captures the magic of the musician during these fabled years, and is also testament to the enduring friendship shared by its two authors.
