"Wasn't That A Time" photography exhibition ----New York free

Acclaimed Photographer
Rowland Scherman appears in SoHo to launch
"Wasn't That A Time"
A riveting collection of photographs of some of the world's most influential political and pop culture figures spanning 40 years opens at the Morrison Hotel Gallery's Soho Loft at 116 Prince Street in SoHo on Sept. 25 from 7pm - 10pm. 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.
The exhibition and sale will run through October 12th.
