Morrison Hotel Gallery is excited to have legendary photographer and gallery co-owner Henry Diltz exhibit some of his most well known work, and sign copies of his latest book Unpainted Faces (Morrison Hotel Publishing), at the 124 Prince Street gallery, on Wednesday, December 11th, 2013.
Morrison Hotel Gallery and Diltz will be introducing very large 40 x 60 prints of some of his most amazing and iconic photographs. The event will take place from 7:00 to 9:00 PM, is free of charge and will be open to the public. Copies of Henry’s book will be on sale at the gallery and all images will be available for purchase.
In the world of Rock n’ Roll photographers, there are none as extraordinary as Henry Diltz. For over 40 years, his work has graced hundreds of album covers and has been featured in books, magazines and newspapers.
His unique artistic style has produced powerful photographic essays of Woodstock, The Monterey Pop Festival, The Doors, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jimi Hendrix and scores of other legendary artists.
A founding member of the Modern Folk Quartet (whose albums in the early 60s were produced by Phil Spector), Diltz is as much at home as a musician on tour as he is a visual historian of the last four decades of popular music. The rapport he’s developed with his musician friends, along with his down-to-earth-grin and frequent laugh, enables him to capture the candid shots that convey a rare feeling of trust and intimacy with his subjects.
HENRY DILTZ: An Exhibition and Book Signing is Open to the Public Wednesday, December 11th from 7 to 9 PM at the Morrison Hotel Gallery, 124 Prince Street, NYC.
