|John Lennon & Yoko On by Allan Tannenbaum|
The Orphic Gallery in Roxbury, NY is pleased to announce the opening on Saturday, October 12th, 2013 of a new exhibit EXCEPT THE DOLLS featuring the work of Allan Tannenbaum.
Allan Tannenbaum is a photojournalist from New York City who has documented the cultural life of the city independently and as Chief Photographer & Photo Editor of the Soho Weekly News and Staff Photographer for Sygma Photo News. Allan’s music photography from the 70s provides a culture window into the legendary downtown music scene and captures performances of the major touring acts of this time. His intimate photos of John Lennon and Yoko Ono taken 10 days before his murder in December 1980 remain some of the most poignant and iconic photos of this era.
