Every once in a great while, an artist comes along whose eccentricities and endearing candor compel onlookers to beg the necessary questions of creative expression, of proverbial distinctions between (art)ifice and the surreality of human endeavor. Blurring the lines between subject and self, photographer Lynn Goldsmith is one of those remarkable, experiential artists who brings as much of herself to her seminal portraits as iconic sitters spanning the gamut from rockstars and celebrities to world leaders and passerby oddities otherwise relegated to the anonymity of commonplace ephemera.
In the continued mission of offering fans unprecedented access inside the daily lives and legendary archives of the music industry's most captivating personalities, the inimitable Goldsmith makes an exemplary addition to Morrison Hotel Gallery's Behind The Lens as she sits down to answer viewer questions and lend insight on highlights from her impressive oeuvre spanning a near half-century and counting. Streaming from the photographer's Nashville compound to Instagram Live, episode 3 premieres on Thursday, March 26 at 5PM EDT.
