“Behind The Lens with Pattie Boyd and Henry Diltz” is already SOLD OUT for the Los Angeles show at Largo and tickets are going fast for the shows in City Winery’s in Nashville, Chicago, NYC, and at the Narrows Performing Arts Center in Fall River, MA.
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, the Behind The Lens tour will feature a live presentation of still and moving images along with the stories told by each photographer. Morrison Hotel Gallery, as the leader in fine art music photography, will also create a gallery exhibition and sale to travel with each show.
The first in what will be a series of Behind The Lens tours features two legendary music photographers: Henry Diltz, 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 – the Doors, Crosby, Still and Nash, James Taylor to name a few; and Pattie Boyd the “Queen of the Sixties” a drop-dead gorgeous model, the inspiration for the timeless love songs ‘Something”, “Layla” and “Wonderful Tonight,” and acclaimed photographer, her intimate and revealing photographs of George Harrison and the Beatles and Eric Clapton among others.
“This concept is not new to us as we have been presenting our photographers and their work for years in our SoHo, New York Gallery space. We saw the constant approval from our audiences and the demand that we knew would be there in other cities for this kind of entertainment, says Peter Blachley, tour producer and one of the founders of the gallery. “These people were witnesses to music history and they possessed the talent to uniquely document the music from the audience, backstage and on the road. Many of these stories will contain surprise, humor and reality. But most of all, authentic and honest recollections of music history backed up by the stunning visuals we all know and many we have never seen.”
Behind The Lens, while in Nashville, will present a special week-long photographic exhibition and sale at City Winery (September 13-19) as part of the Americana Music Festival. Hosted by Morrison Hotel Gallery, the exhibit will feature iconic images of songwriters and performers captured by many of the world’s greatest fine art music photographers. As part of this special exhibit, Henry Diltz will debut never-before-seen fine art prints of his recent photo session with Glen Campbell in Nashville this past June. Glen’s family, who personally requested Henry do the photo shoot, was the last session Glen Campbell did. Diltz was honored to be asked to be the one to take these beautiful and touching pictures of Glen, and to capture the magic that the legend still has in him, while he battles Alzheimer’s.
“I spent the day recently photographing good ole’ Glen Campbell. He played a guitar solo on the single I recorded with my folk group, The Modern Folk Quartet, in the 60’s. We didn’t talk about that though, because Glen does not have to deal with the details of his past these days… He’s free of all that. But he’s smiling and he seems content in the present moment. The Dalai Lama says, “The purpose of life is happiness,” so Glen, with his family around him, has that. God bless him for all the great musical moments he has given us. It was my honor to be asked to do this special photo session.” – Henry Diltz
This Nashville exhibit is dedicated to Glen Campbell, and all those who fight and are affected by the battle against Alzheimer’s disease.
Morrison Hotel Gallery, in SoHo, will present a special exhibition and reception with Henry and Pattie, exclusively for all ticket holders at it’s SoHo gallery, on September 22nd, the night after the City Winery show in New York (September 21st). Ticket holders will have the opportunity to view and purchase the iconic fine art images of both Henry and Pattie’s in an intimate setting.
