Offering fans unprecedented access inside the daily lives and legendary archives of the music industry's most captivating personalities, Morrison Hotel Gallery's Behind The Lens subsidiary expands its reach with the March 18, 2020 premiere of a new Instagram Live/IGTV series. Streaming directly from the respective home or studio of a featured photographer, each open-format episode merges elements of storytelling, conversational Q&A and the cultivation of a global music culture in accordance with the evolving brand identity of Morrison Hotel Gallery, the international leader in fine art music photography.
Starting off strong, fans tuning in to the inaugural episode streamed exclusively through the gallery's Instagram Stories were greeted by celebrated photographer and music legend in his own right Mick Rock who did not disappoint. With his raconteur's eloquence and heap of iconic images spanning more than a half-century (and counting), Rock sifts through work prints as he coyly ruminates on storied sessions and the phenomena which followed. If his sordid tales sound more like those passed between old drinking mates, that's because that is precisely what they are. From the countercultural compatriot whose presence Lou Reed could not stand to what artists like David Bowie and Debbie Harry were really like when the cameras stopped rolling, hear the personal anecdotes of "The Man Who Shot the Seventies" on episode 1 of Behind The Lens Instagram Live.
