The Morrison Hotel Gallery is proud to present the photography of Stephanie Chernikowski"Images from the Blank Generation"It was serendipitous that Stephanie Chernikowski moved from her native Texas to New York City in 1975 to document the music and avante garde art scene that was exploding downtown. The epicenter of this scene was at the legendary CBGB club located at 315 Bowery. This year the Tribeca Film festival is showing a documentary on CBGB entitled "Burning Down the House". directed by Mandy Stein In the spirit of the documentary, Chernikowski's photography brilliantly captures the mood of this visceral era by challenging and deconstructing the status quo via several artistic mediums. She has photographed everyone from Richard Hell, the Ramones, Patti Smith, Marianne Faithful and beyond.Her good friend Henry Rollins published her photo book "Dream Baby Dream Images from the Blank Generation". Chernikowski has had both solo and group shows around the world and has been published in "Rolling Stone", "The Village Voice", and the "New York Times."
