Iconic Images by Legendary Snappers Mark First Tour
By DONNA BALANCIA – NEW YORK – Pattie Boyd and Henry Diltz may not look alike, but they both see life in a similar fashion from Behind The Lens.
The two photographers will be on hand to discuss their respective work as Behind The Lens, an exhibit of their photography work, hits New York City on Sept. 21.
“The (Behind The Lens) tour is so great,” Diltz said. “We’re very excited to be doing this type of tour, the first of it’s kind.”
Presented by Morrison Hotel Gallery, produced and directed by gallery co-owner and founder Peter Blachley and executive produced by gallery co-owners Rich Horowitz and Timothy White, Behind The Lens features a live presentation of still and moving images along with the stories told by each photographer.
“People think Pattie and I have known each other for a long time, but we only met when Morrison Hotel Gallery started to represent her photography,” Diltz said. “So, it hasn’t been that long, but she is a wonderful person and such a talented photographer.”
Morrison Hotel Gallery will also create a gallery exhibition and sale to travel with each show. GET TICKETS HERE
Diltz is considered one of the greatest music photographers of the last century with over 400,000 images in his archive and over 400 album covers to his name. He has created iconic images for artists including the Doors, Crosby, Stills and Nash, and James Taylor.
Boyd, known as “Queen of the Sixties,” and a well-known model, was the inspiration for the love songs ‘Something,” “Layla,” and “Wonderful Tonight.” She is known for her photographs of George Harrison, The Beatles, Eric Clapton and others.
“Between the two of us, with all of our stories and the photographs, we have some great stuff to share with the audiences at each stop on the tour,” Diltz said. “We hope this will be the first of many more Behind The Lens tours to come, with some of the other photographers the gallery works with.”
For New York City Behind The Lens ticket holders, a private reception will be held at the gallery in Soho the night after the show.
The show is presented by Morrison Hotel Gallery. The gallery has several locations. For more information see Morrison Hotel Gallery.
