CHICAGO, IL.- City Winery Chicago, 1200 W. Randolph, will host Behind the Lens with Henry Diltz and Pattie Boyd, a live presentation of still and moving images along with stories told by pair of legendary photographers. Morrison Hotel Gallery, a leader in fine art music photography, has also created a gallery exhibition and sale to travel with the show.

Henry Diltz, considered one of the greatest music photographers of the last century, has more than 400,000 images in his archive and more than 400 album covers to his name, for such bands as The Doors, Crosby, Stills & Nash and James Taylor.

Drop-dead gorgeous model Pattie Boyd, the “Queen of the Sixties,” is the inspiration for the timeless love songs “Something,” “Layla” and “Wonderful Tonight.” Boyd is celebrated for her intimate and revealing photographs of George Harrison and The Beatles and Eric Clapton, among others.

“These people were witnesses to music history, and they possessed the talent to uniquely document the music from the audience, backstage and on the road,” says Peter Blachley, a Morrison Hotel Gallery founder. “Many of these stories will contain surprise, humor and reality. But most of all, authentic and honest recollections of music history backed up by the stunning visuals we all know and many we have never seen.”

With Behind the Lens, Morrison Hotel Gallery announces the expansion of its acclaimed music photography exhibition. This original national tour of its legendary music photographers is a live show presented by the artists themselves as they share their amazing stories and iconic images with audiences nationwide. Behind the Lens with Henry Diltz and Pattie Boyd will also travel to City Winery locations in Nashville (Sept. 13) and New York City (Sept. 21). The tour kicks off September 10, at Largo in Los Angeles, in association with Monterey International booking agency.

Henry Diltz is considered one of the greatest music photographers of the last century. He has published three books about his life as a musician and photographer. A documentary about his life will be released this fall, and he will receive the prestigious Lucie Award for lifetime achievement in photography at this year’s ceremony at New York’s Carnegie Hall. Diltz is a guest lecturer at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and has had three museum shows dedicated to his works.

Model, musician, artist and writer, Pattie Boyd is the muse behind some of the greatest love songs ever written. Her New York Times bestseller Wonderful Tonight first brought her story of drama, struggle and, ultimately, affirmation to the public. A photographer of musicians and landscapes, Boyd has been a member of the Royal Photographic Society for many years. Her life was lived with two of the twentieth century’s greatest musical icons: her husbands George Harrison and Eric Clapton.

Behind the Lens takes place Wednesday, Sept. 16, 8 p.m. at City Winery Chicago. Tickets – $28, $32 and $36 – are on sale now at www.citywinery.com. A limited number of meet-and-greet tickets is available for $50.
