Lou Reed exhibitions open



Lou Reed opened two simultaneous exhibits of his photographs on Friday, at
two separate venues in New York, the Gallery at Hermes and the Steven Kasher
Gallery. The shots on show were taken with a digital camera, and display
urban landscapes. Reed, who says that his photography is influenced by Andy
Warhol and Wim Wenders, told New York Magazine: “When I was touring around
the world, I would find myself getting a chance to see things that other
people might not, and I just thought it would be crazy not take pictures of
it. I think Leonard Cohen had a line, ‘I would travel anywhere in the
pursuit of beauty.’ And this is the beauty of New York, and I just wanted to
take pictures of that, with no motive other than that.”
