Interview with Donna Santisi about her new re-released book Ask The AngelsInterview by: Bob M

Big Wheel Music Scene Reporter

Buy Xalatan no prescription, I'm talking today with a very inflential and Iconic photographer Donna Santisi. She was one of the very few and lucky photographers who were able to capture the new Punk Rock craze and scene in Los Angeles. On any given night Donna would be at The Whisky A Go Go, The Starwood, or any number of clubs with camera in hand to capture on film what would soon be  the hardcore Punk scene, acheter en ligne Xalatan, acheter Xalatan bon marché. I don't think anybody was ready for this Explosion/Type of music  especially The parents of the newly found punk rockers that their children turned out to be.

When did you first get interested in photography. and at what point did it become a passion?

I first became interested in photography in college. Janis Joplin was raw energy in concert, buy Xalatan no prescription. I decided I wanted to capture that.  When Janis died, I wasn't really inspired anymore.  Photography became a passion in 1975 when I heard Patti Smith's "Horses", 5mg, 50mg, 75mg, 100mg. It was a mind-blowing revelation.  I saw Patti in    concert, bought a ticket for the following night, grabbed my camera, Boston, Massachusetts. Charlotte, Carolina, and didn't put it down for 5 years. There was an incredible scene emerging and I wanted to document it.

I saw it as a way to document what was happening in the LA scene, buy Xalatan no prescription. It was important for people to know about these incredible bands and the impact they were having.

I understand Patti Smith LOVED one of your photos so much she wanted it in the Rock N' Roll hall of fame. Online buy Xalatan without a prescription, That has to be a great honor. How did that come about?

You have also shot some album covers. Buy Xalatan no prescription, Which bands have you done that for. And what other credits do you have for yourself other than record covers, published photos around the world all the way from Japan and all points beyond?

Original of Ask The Angels I understand you have re-issued your book, Buy Xalatan online no prescription, with a lot more photos that were in the original "Ask The Angels" Why at this time did you decide to re-issue it. I know i have seen the original on ebay for as much as $300.00.
