A Son's Tribute To The Beatles
约翰•列侬之子展出披头士珍贵照片

On Thursday, the Morrison Hotel Gallery on Prince Street in SoHo will open a photography show celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles coming to the U.S.

What separates this exhibit from other events of its ilk? It was curated by Julian Lennon, the son of John Lennon and Cynthia Powell and a photographer in his own right. (He is also represented by the Morrison Hotel Gallery, who put on his first exhibition in New York.)

The 50th anniversary had come up several times with Mr. Lennon but 'it was all seeming too much of a muchness, you know?' he said the other day in a phone conversation from Europe before a several-day trip to Kenya and Ethiopia as part of his White Feather Foundation. 'It was not only impossible to figure out who was doing this, that and the other, but I just decided to take a backseat and send my best wishes and love that way.'

Then Timothy White, a photographer and a partner at the Morrison Hotel Gallery, came to Mr. Lennon with an idea to peruse a few hundred photos of his dad with the Beatles, pick out 25 or maybe 50, because it was the 50th anniversary. Mr. Lennon thought that was a good idea. (Twenty-five shots will be exhibited at the New York space and another 25 at a gallery in Los Angeles, at which Timothy White is a partner.)

'For me, this was a much more personal, emotional and respectful way of being involved, especially with photography as my number one passion these days,' said Mr. Lennon. He attempted to find photographs that in particular 'gave me an emotion and told me a bit more of the inside story and what these boys were feeling when they were going through what they were going through.'

Mr. Lennon said he saw in some of the images 'the look of anxiety or fear'; 'a certain element of numbness'; and 'the reality of the situation,' i.e. popularity of the Beatles really 'hitting them.'

'What an incredible experience they had,' said Mr. Lennon.

周四,纽约苏豪区普林斯大街的莫里森酒店画廊(Morrison Hotel Gallery)将举办一场以纪念披头士来美50周年为主题的摄影展。

这场展览的特别之处在于,照片的提供者正是约翰•列侬(John Lennon)和辛西娅•鲍威尔(Cynthia Powell)的儿子朱利安•列侬(Julian Lennon)。朱利安本人也是一位摄影师,曾在莫里森酒店画廊举办他个人在纽约的首场摄影展。

举办50周年纪念活动的想法曾不止一次闪过朱利安的脑海。他在一次电话采访中说:但我总觉得这样太多余了。我没法搞清楚有谁打算要怎样来纪念,我也想低调地、默默地寄托我的爱和祝福。接受采访时朱利安正在欧洲,准备动身前往肯尼亚和埃塞俄比亚参加他创建的白羽基金会(White Feather Foundation)的慈善活动。

后来,莫里森酒店画廊的合伙人、摄影师蒂莫西•怀特(Timothy White)找到了朱利安,想从朱利安父亲和披头士成员的照片中精选25张或50张用于展出。朱利安觉得这个主意不错。(纽约画廊将展出25张照片,怀特在洛杉矶的一家画廊将展出另外25张照片)

朱利安说:摄影是我这些日子最热爱的事情,我觉得这种参与方式更亲密,更有人情味,也更有敬意。朱利安想找出那些“能带动我的情绪,让我切身体会到这些男孩的人生感触”的照片。

朱利安说,他在一些照片中看到了“忧虑或恐惧”、“些许傻气”和“场景的真实感”,照片中人们对披头士的热烈欢迎“震撼了他们”。

朱利安感叹道:那真是一段传奇般的经历。
