Once the vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter for the American rock group The Velvet Underground, Lou Reed has to this day continued to be influential within the music industry as both a solo artist and collaborator. While many dedicated fans know of his contributions to music, others may not know of his growing portfolio of experimental photographs, much of which is showcased in a new book called Rimes Rhymes. The book, recently published by French publisher Éditions Photosynthèses, features over 300 photographs by Reed along with text by Bernard Comment.
