Our friend, Lou Reed

Yesterday, the world lost one of the most influential artists of our time. On Sunday, October 27th, 2013 rock legend Lou Reed passed. Lou Reed was not only an accomplished musician, but an accomplished photographer and we are so proud to call him a customer and, above all, a friend. Lou's career began when he moved to New York City to work in music. After some time as a songwriter, he formed the legendary group the Velvet Underground. Reed's time in the music world, both in the Velvet Underground and his solo career, is unparalleled as he pushed the boundaries of what music was and what it could be. It wasn't until the early 90s that Lou became a customer of Foto Care, but since then, we have built a relationship with the photographer that we will treasure. We send our best wishes and regards to his wife, Laurie Anderson, as well as all of the people that were close to him.
