April 24, 2008 - 'Rockers' Opening at Morrison Hotel Gallery Bowery - I've put up my 280 favorite photos at the space that used to be the gallery at CBGB. It's an amazing retrospective of my whole career. I hope you get a chance to see it.

Yoko Ono came to the opening. It was great that she had a chance to see all the work I've done besides the photos of her and John.

 


Debbie Harry was impressed with the size of the exhibition. She was at the first show I had in this space, in 1990 when it first opened as the gallery at CBGB.


We've built an installation for the photos, the front room has colorful rose walls, and there is a mock 'teenage bedroom in-between the front and back.

 
The back section is built like a city-scape scene, with buildings as the spaces for the photos and a skyline painted above.


Tito Ficarelli came from Brazil to design the exhibition in the same style as the one he made for me last Spring at the FAAP University museum in Sao Paulo

 


My 95 year old mom was happy to meet Yoko at the opening. I learned everything I know about photography from my mom.


Bernadette Peters was at the opening
 


Clem Burke & BP Fallon came to see what the show was like, and enjoyed the 'teenage bedroom'


Michael Schmidt, Bob Gruen, Debbie Harry, Miss Guy & Snooky Bellomo get some air on the sidewalk out front

 


For most of the night there was a crowd milling on the sidewalk like the old CB's days.


John Varvatos came to see what I had installed next to the store he opened next door in the old CBGB club space. He's a real rock fan and was happy to see a real rock photo show.

 


John Varvatos says hi to Jesse Malin & Danny Sage who played a week earlier in a reunion of their D-Generation band at John's party to celebrate the opening of his new store next door
