Julian Lennon’s edited collection of portraiture and landscape photography debuts at The Morrison Hotel Gallery Bowery, 313 Bowery (Bowery & Bleecker Street) New York, NY, September 16, 2010.
This premiere exhibition and sale of Julian Lennon’s stunning collection of limited edition and hand signed portraiture and landscape photography, entitled Timeless, is curated by one of the most sought after celebrity photographers, Timothy White and sponsored by Lennon’s charity, The White Feather Foundation, Duggal Visual Solutions, Inc. and Canson Inc., creators of the world’s finest Fine Art and Photo Papers: Canson Infinity.
Lennon developed a love for photography at a very young age and over the years has been perfecting his work. The exhibit will showcase Lennon’s landscape work, and also take us into his studio where he recently photographed U2 as they recorded their newest album. In addition, Lennon takes us behind the scenes for a photographic look at the Sean Lennon tour.
“I have always felt that I have observed life, in a different way than others; probably because my life has been very different than most. Music has always been one creative outlet for me, but now I’m happy to add another one too, that being photography.”
– Julian Lennon
Lennon has enjoyed an accomplished music career, including multiple awards from 1985 onward. His much anticipated sixth album, Everything Changes, will be released in early 2011.
Lennon has been focused on making a difference in what has become a rather sensitively-balanced world. The White Feather Foundation embraces environmental and humanitarian issues in conjunction with partners from around the world and works to raise funds for the betterment of all life, and to honor those who have truly made a difference.
Peter Blachley, co-owner of the Morrison Hotel Gallery says, "Timothy White has captured the essence of Julian’s style as we witness the emergence of a fine new photographer. We are very excited about working with Julian's photography and being the first gallery in the world to present his artwork."
The Morrison Hotel Gallery (morrisonhotelgallery.com) was founded in 2001 by Peter Blachley, a former record company executive, producer Rich Horowitz, a former independent record store owner, and Henry Diltz, a legendary music photographer. The gallery has since grown to become a major brand in fine art music photography and is respected amongst peers and artists alike.
Lennon’s photos on display are printed exclusively on Canson Infinity’s Edition Etching Rag and BFK Rives papers, two museum-quality papers hand selected by Julian Lennon for this exhibition. Canson Infinity, crafted in the Canson and Arches mills in France, recently won the prestigious Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) award for their Baryta Photographique, selected by TIPA as the Best Fine Art Ink Jet Paper of 2010.
“We are delighted that Julian Lennon selected our fine art papers for his new exhibit ‘Timeless’,” said Robert Toth, Vice President of Marketing at Canson. “Julian’s photography has left us with a lasting impression and we are thrilled to be a part of this exhibition at the Morrison Hotel Gallery.”
Also sponsoring this exhibit is Duggal Visual Solutions, Inc., one of the nation’s top photo/imaging facilities, and supplier of printing, imaging, wide format graphics, and display services. Duggal was incorporated in 1963 and is based in New York City.
