Three Days in Paris
May 20 – May 30, 2010
Shot over the course of three days last June, the 78 – 16 x 20 black + white photographs in this exhibition chronicle the exploits of two iconic bands meeting for the first time in Paris – The Beastie Boys promoting a new album and The Dead Weather preparing for a series of shows throughout Europe – and offer a cozy portrait of that chance encounter intimately recorded by Philip Andelman.
Andelman recounts: There was something magical to those three days, a sense of carefree adventure, of being away from home and the constraints imposed by day-to-day life … It was June and the summer had only just begun – The three days felt more like an adolescent summer vacation abroad, from the late night bike rides along the Seine to giddily spinning around in circles inside the ladies room at he Ritz Hotel at three in the morning.
