Morrison Hotel Gallery is excited to present a special photography exhibit by one of the most respected and accomplished talents in the music industry, Dave Stewart: Jumpin' Jack Flash & The Suicide Blonde, will open to the public on Saturday, July 13th at the Sunset Marquis location.
The Dave Stewart: Jumpin' Jack Flash & The Suicide Blonde exhibition will feature 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.
Dave Stewart is an English musician, songwriter and record producer, best known for his work beside Annie Lennox in Eurythmics, one of the most successful pop-rock duos of all time. 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 of the more creative musicians/artist/photographers working today. He continues to produce mind blowing things at a very fast pace. He is always doing something - sound, video, photography, film and music. Working with others on projects. He is a 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.
