John Lennon - Julian Lennon Displays Art Collection At Art Basel

John Lennon's eldest son Julian has launched a new photography exhibit to raise money for charity.

The singer/artist, the Beatles star's son with his first wife Cynthia, is displaying his collection Alone at the prestigious Art Basel festival in Miami Beach, Florida from 6 to 9 December (12).

Lennon's prints range from $3,500 (£2,180) to $5,500 (£3,400), and he has pledged to give a portion of his earnings to his White Feather Foundation.

He tells the Afp, "I've been a philanthropist for all my life, and... I've had many involvements in humanitarian and environmental issues. Whatever work I do, I've always put at least 10 per cent aside (for) my foundation.

"What we're trying to do here, and... why I'm so happy to be part of this, is we're trying to make everybody else see that. Because there is a lot of money, obviously. And the idea is to put it back in schools."

When asked if his late father influenced his art, Julian added, "What his work has shown many people is that you can actually be an individual in this world, and you don't have to be a sheep. And you can achieve things."
