Hollywood: July 13, 2013
One of the most respected and accomplished talents in the music industry, English musician, DAVE STEWART, opened a special photography exhibit at the Morrison Hotel Gallery last night.
Among the hip Hollywood crowd that showed
up to check out Stewart’s work were celebs, Elliot Guild, Melissa Gilbert, Billy Bob Thornton, Jeremy Davies and record producer, Glen Ballard.
Other notables included legendary photographer and Morrison Hotel Gallery co-owner, Henry Diltz, publicist turned film producer, David Jay Lasky, filmmaker, Christy Oldham, and actress/singer, Kat Kramer, daughter of the late film director, Stanley Kramer.
“The Dave Stewart: Jumpin’ Jack Flash & The Suicide Blonde” exhibition features Stewart’s iconic photographs of Damien Hirst, Demi Moore, Carla Bruni, Björk, Mick Jagger, Sinead O’Connor, Orianthi, Joss Stone and more, including new and unseen photos.
Beyond his creative work in the music industry, Stewart is also a renowned author, director, filmmaker and photographer. His career spans three decades and over 100 million album sales.
Behind the scenes, Dave has produced albums and co-written songs with Stevie Nicks, Mick Jagger, Bono, Joss Stone, Bryan Ferry, Gwen Stefani, Tom Petty, Damian Marley and more, earning numerous Golden Globe and Grammy Awards along the way.
Says Stewart, “I’ve always been obsessed with visual imagery since I was a child.
These portraits were mostly taken in my apartment, I don’t know how or why these shoots came together – usually it was just part of a continuing conversation or a spur of the moment thing. I’m always taking photos or filming stuff for no reason other than to document what is going on around me. It’s a kind of re-assurance to myself that these things did actually happen.”
“Dave Stewart is one creative powerhouse to watch when it comes to his photography and we are very pleased to present him in this exhibit,” says gallery co-owner and iconic photographer Timothy White.
Dave Stewart: Jumpin’ Jack Flash & The Suicide Blonde, will open to the public Saturday, July 13th at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in the Sunset Marquis Hotel, located at 1200 Alta Loma Road in West Hollywood.
