"I shot that photograph for Entertainment Weekly," Clinch says. "They said to Patti Smith, 'We'd like to go record shopping with you to one of those used record shops downtown. We'll cover the costs and then we'll interview you and shoot some photos.' I'm a big Patti Smith fan and I was very nervous about her coming and meeting her for some reason.
"She was a little bit late and I was hanging out down in this basement at Subterranean Records. I went outside to wait since I had nervous energy and I was pacing around. I looked down the street and I could see Patti walking down the street. I quickly was like, 'Oh my God, the light's beautiful and the wind is blowing.' I stopped her before she went down and introduced herself and said, 'This light is so beautiful. If I could just get a quick photograph of you before you go downstairs, that would be great.' As I started taking the photos, the wind came out and started blowing her hair around. I grabbed a couple of frames and there it was."
