“Two years and many cameras and lenses later, these images are the result of a small attempt to share the beauty that has bedazzled the consciousness of this viewer standing on the edge of the river with a box in hand trying to catch the lightning bolt of time. This is organic photography, a recording of the city’s celestial light show—the blazing changes from dawn to dusk across the Hudson—an everyday recording of the majestic flowing sky and waters produced by a deity of such endless talent and originality that a photographer can only snap, focus, and pray that this or that camera, lens, digital back, and all the technical advances coming by the minute can somehow capture a fragment of the quickly shifting magnitude being presented for the inspiration of anyone looking.”— Lou Reed
After the sucess of his recent exhibition in New York, legendary musician Lou Reed will show his photographs in Italy for the first time. Lou Reed’s exhibitions, entitled “New York,” feature over 50 photographs of the city that has been the fulcrum of Reed’s creative world for decades. These deeply personal pictures, many shot from Reed’s own apartment windows, include the play of light as the sun sets over the Hudson River and a selection of idiosyncratic self- portraits. The exhibitions are concurrent with the release of the second book of Lou Reed’s photographs, entitled Lou Reed’s New York.
