Daily Dose Pick: Morrison Hotel Gallery


New York’s Morrison Hotel Gallery showcases the rich and diverse world of fine art photographs both of and by rock, blues, and punk’s greatest legends, from Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen to Blondie and Björk.

Co-founder Henry Diltz is responsible for the gallery’s namesake Doors album cover (and dozens more classic-rock memes), and shows photographers as varied as Jim Marshall and Autumn DeWilde, with a special appreciation for photography by artists better known as musicians, such as Julian Lennon and Dave Stewart. The epically thorough website is searchable by band, year, and genre, and includes special web-only exhibitions.

View the gallery’s extensive on-line archive, watch videos of Dave Stewart and others discussing their work, and keep up with events at the gallery’s NYC locations.
