Rowland Scherman's "Wasn't That A Time" Show Opens September 25 in SoHo

Acclaimed photographer Rowland Scherman will unveil “Wasn’t That A Time” a riveting collection of photographs of some of the world’s most influential political and pop culture figures spanning over four decades at the Morrison Hotel Gallery’s SoHo Loft on Sept. 25. This exhibit marks a departure for Morrison as it includes subjects mostly outside of the musical realm. Scherman’s photographs captured with a hand-held Leica camera take a close and intimate look at a pivotal time in US history. In this current election season weighted with history and significance these photos take on an added resonance. A chilling shot of Jimmy Hoffa after his conviction in 1964, photos of Robert F. Kennedy strategizing with campaign advisers in 1968, and pictures of Bob Dylan at the 1963 Newport Folk Festival are all featured in the exhibit.

In 1961 Scherman became the first photographer for the newly formed Peace Corps, he traveled the world to help shape the agency’s image. He shot editorial, fashion and covers for LIFE, Look, Time, National Geographic, Paris Match and Playboy among others. He won a Grammy Award for Best Album Cover in 1968 for ‘Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits,’ as well as the Washington DC Art Director’s Award for Photographer of the year. Now living on Cape Cod, Rowland Scherman has returned to his first love: portraiture and is continually inspired, as so many artists are, by the majestic Cape light.
