The Morrison Hotel Gallery is a music photography gem. Founded in 2001 by Peter Blachley a former record company executive and music producer, Rich Horowitz a former independent record store owner and, perhaps most importantly, Henry Diltz a famed music photographer, The Morrison Hotel Gallery remains a must see for all music photography aficionados.
The gallery prides itself on focusing on the people behind the camera almost as much as those in front, “They most likely had no idea what they were creating or how timeless the image would become. Music photography elicits an emotional reaction that is unique to all of us. It is no more than one-second of life at the time it takes to click the shutter. But what is forever frozen is timeless, and that’s what draws us to the photographs. We as people can’t live forever, but it seems as though the images do.” The Morrison Gallery embodies the true spirit of music photography and gives us a closer, more meaningful look at the lives of artists we’ve come to revere.
The gallery has five locations, three in downtown NYC and one in California. Current exhibitions include: Dark Night of the Soul: An exhibit consisting of 50 photographs by David Lynch Music by Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse; Curt Gunther, Beatles First North American Tour ’64, What’s up in The Bowery? and many more. You can look at photographs and buy prints from the gallery’s website.
