Julian Lennon to Show Portrait and Landscape Photographs at Miami's Adrienne Arsht Center

MIAMI (AP).- Julian Lennon, son of late Beatles legend John Lennon, is showing off what he can do with a camera.

An exhibit called "Timeless" features about 30 of Lennon's hand-signed portrait and landscape photographs and will run Dec. 1-5 at Miami's Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.

Prints of his photographs will sell for about $3,500 each, with a portion of the proceeds to go to the White Feather Foundation that he launched to further environmental and humanitarian causes.

Lennon, 47, said Tuesday in a telephone interview from France that the exhibit will include photographs he took of the rock band U2, but those won't be sold because those might be used for an upcoming U2 album. He said those taken in a photojournalism style show the reality of his subjects.

"I am not going to do anybody any favors by covering the truth, but also I am not here to make people look bad either," he said.

He also said his exhibition includes works created in a painting-like style, including photographs of clouds that he called "a serious passion."

He said many of those photographs bring him a sense of peace.

"For me it's very much about finding a time and a place to feel a little at peace. It's a Zen moment. It's almost like meditation. It's finding an image that makes me feel at peace and also close to Mother Nature and our surroundings," he said.

Lennon said he has been taking photos for years, but it wasn't until he went on tour with his younger brother Sean a few years ago and took some backstage photos of him that he "really fell in love with it."

Some of Lennon's photos also can be purchased at the SCOPE Miami Art Show, a satellite art fair running from Nov. 30 to Dec. 5.

Lennon's first photo exhibit was in September and he is going to release a new album next year called "Everything Changes."
