Don't Look Back at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in SoHo

About a week ago I read an announcement in the free newspaper AM New York that there would be a display of photographs from Don't Look Back, the D.A. Pennebaker documentary about Bob Dylan's tour of England in Spring 1965.  There was a more detailed article about this exhibition at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in the New York Times.  Today we decided to take the subway to SoHo to see this exhibit.

There were many black and white prints taken from the film.  I was most impressed by harmonicas that were used by Dylan and autographed by him.  Each harmonica cost $5,000!  I'd love to have one, but I have to save for retirement.

D. A. Pennebaker is still going strong at age 90 as he has a new documentary called Unlocking the Cage which was recently released.

We walked from SoHo uptown to NoHo and then to Greenwich Village.  There was a large gathering of Hare Krishnas in Washington Square Park.
