Roberta Bayley worked the door at NYC’s infamous CBGB’s during the mid 70’s. During that time she became friends with some of the most important artists of the Punk Scene.

She also happened to be a damned good photographer and ended up at all the right places at all the right times with everyone from The Ramones to Blondie to Iggy Pop to The Sex Pistols. She captured an era from 1974 to 1985 that has become historic.
