Biography

Primarily known as a singer-songwriter and music and film producer, Julian Lennon burst onto the art scene in 2010 with an exhibition of photographs documenting intimate moments with world-renowned musicians and cultural figures. Lennon’s first exhibit, “Timeless”, included portraits of Bono and U2 in a recording studio and Princess Charlene of Monaco moments before being crowned Princess. Lennon’s images bring otherwise highly revered figures down to earth, capturing intimate, empathetic moments. Working with charity organizations, his photography largely serves a philanthropic purpose, as in the case of “Horizons,” which documents portraits and landscapes from Kenya and Ethiopia to raise awareness for the construction of clean water wells. More recently, Lennon has produced film stills for “The Price of Desire,” a film about furniture designer and modern architecture pioneer Eileen Gray, cast in a hazy, muted, vintage-inspired light.
