Morrison Hotel Gallery, in the lobby of our luxury Hollywood hotel, features the most iconic and famous images of past and present music icons. It is co-owned by Timothy White, one of the most sought-after celebrity photographers in the field and the man who curates the art found all around the hotel, as well as Henry Diltz, famed photographer responsible for capturing a seemingly incalculable number of incredible moments in music history, not the least of which include many of The Doors.
Morrison Hotel Gallery® is the world leader in fine art music photography representing over 125 of the most highly acclaimed music photographers — those who made, and continue to make, an indelible mark on music culture with photographic portrayals of the industry’s most influential artists.
What We Do
Morrison Hotel Gallery curates hundreds of the world’s most exceptional collections of rare and iconic music photography for international exhibition and sale. Working with the photographers themselves, the family estates, and often legendary artists in music who are also photographers, Morrison Hotel Gallery brings to light unseen archives, drawing from a vast and growing catalog of jazz, blues, and rock genres dating back to the 1940s and up to today’s contemporary artists. Hollywood and sports photographs are also included in many of the archives represented.
Early on in his career, Henry mastered the art of capturing the moment. What he has proved over the decades is the illusive art of capturing life.
