Julian Lennon

Encouraged by the success of his first-ever exhibition of fine art photography, Timeless, which took place in New York City in 2010, Julian seeks to depict his personal journey as an artist in the midst of unique life experiences.

Though primarily known as a singer-songwriter, musician and producer, Julian has grown to encompass many talents including those of documentary film producer, philanthropist and, as of late, fine art photographer. He has found a diverse base of fans around the world, engaged by both his world-view and artistic output.
