RARE SPRINGSTEEN EXHIBIT COMES TO LA

This show will feature photographs by the select few privy to documenting this landmark album, including luminaries such as David Gahr,
Frank Stefanko, Jim Marchese, Joel Bernstein, Lynn Goldsmith, Neal Preston and Patrick Harbron.

The images in this exhibit span the period of 1974 to 1984. They contain images featured in The River anniversary box set, as well as some
never before seen images from photographers David Gahr and Jim Marchese. The exhibit debuted on Jan. 22 at the gallery's NYC location,
in SoHo to rave reviews, with praise in the media from the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and others.

"This exhibition is a tribute to a timeless body of work from the extraordinary musical talent of Bruce Springsteen so beautifully captured by
David Gahr, Frank Stefanko, Jim Marchese, Joel Bernstein, Lynn Goldsmith Neal Preston, and Patrick Harbron. The staff of
the Morrison Hotel Galleries in New York and Los Angeles are proud to represent these talented artists,"
says gallery co-founder and owner, Peter Blachley of the exhibit.

The River Collection marks the first time Morrison Hotel Gallery has worked with photographer Jim Marchese. Like most fans of fine art
music photography, MHG has long admired Marchese's images which are distinguished by their technicality and unparalleled sense
of art and design. Marchese's work appears on the Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band release Live/1975-85.

FROM BBC COLLECTIVE REVIEW OF THE PROUD GALLERIES SHOW Bruce Springsteen: The Boss Revealed:

Jim Marchese’s contributions are out-standing; it is one of these that adorns the monochrome poster for the exhibition, depicting a youthful pensive Springsteen sitting in an empty arena during a pre-show sound check in Brussels. Marchese has a distinctive style, often using a large aperture to give a tight focus on the subject dissolving into a softer and more impressionistic background. Another such intimate photo shows Springsteen in Paris, bathed in soft late afternoon sunlight as if through stained glass – another empty arena; another rehearsal - the faithful Fender-Esquire slung from his shoulders, his face almost entirely hidden as he pauses to rub his tired eyes with both hands in a gesture that is disarmingly child-like and touching. The picture is almost luminous in quality and benefits from being reproduced in full colour.


JIM MARCHESE INTERVIEWED FOR UK's MOJO MAGAZINE

ANNOUNCING "GREETINGS FROM E STREET: THE STORY OF BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
AND THE E STREET BAND”
by ROBERT SANTELLI
featuring photographs by JIM MARCHESE

Greetings from E Street, by Robert Santelli, is the first and only collective biography of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band written with participation from its members by a long-time intimate. In an illustrated interactive format, it celebrates the life and work of one of the world's best-loved bands. Over 200 photos, documents, handwritten notes, and souvenirs join tour stories, reminiscences, and little-known facts to give readers a full picture of one of the most iconic bands, and musicians, in American rock music.

Rock journalist Bob Santelli begins the tale in 1960s New Jersey with the teen bands whose members--such as Danny Federici--would go on to work with Bruce, and illuminates milestones such as the founding of the band in 1972 (bringing in members such as Clarence Clemons and Garry Tallent), their first taste of superstardom with Born to Run in 1975 (with Max Weinberg and Roy Bittan now on board), their worldwide hit Born in the USA in 1984 (and a sold-out tour featuring Nils Lofgren, and Patti Scialfa), and their marathon tour of 1999-2000 (now with Steve van Zandt and Soozie Tyrell). Packed with rare and never-before-seen mementos and new stories, Greetings from E Street is a must for fans of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

Greetings from E Street is published by Chronicle Books.
