The Little Black Gallery is presenting the first solo show of photographs by Julian Lennon from 7 September – 19 October 2013.
Julian Lennon 50, has always felt that he has observed life differently, perhaps because his path through life has been so unusual. Nothing could be more apparent, as he reveals to the viewer his keen eye for composition and his gift for capturing an intimate moment. In the past he has shot stills for a movie and has photographed musicians including the band U2 backstage.
Encouraged by the success of his first-ever exhibition of fine-art photography, Timeless, which took place in New York City in 2010, Julian seeks to depict his personal journey as an artist in the midst of unique life experiences, with his debut London show
at The Little Black Gallery.
Though primarily known as a singer-songwriter, musician and producer, Julian has grown to encompass many talents, including those of documentary film producer, philanthropist and, as of late, fine-art photographer. He has found a diverse base of fans around the world, engaged by both his world-view and artistic output. All the photographs in the exhibition are from Julian’s recent landscape series Timeless and Alone.
Julian is the only child from Lennon’s first marriage to Cynthia Powell. Unveiling his first photography exhibition in London he said; “It is good to find an artform he can call his own.” He added; that he had pursued his own musical career with “a little stubbornness” despite impossible comparisons to his father.
