Blondie's rise to fame captured in candid photos

Blondie's musical career has spanned more than 40 years.

Now a new photo exhibition charts the band's rise to global stardom with a series of candid pictures taken over the years by Debbie Harry's former partner Chris Stein.

The pair spoke to BBC News at the launch of the exhibition, which is showing at London's Somerset House.

The photos also feature in a book Chris Stein/Negative: Me, Blondie and the Advent of Punk.
