A NEW YORK NIGHT: KATE WINSLET.......AND JOHNNY CASH

Kate Winslet was the star of the New York night at a party in the Plaza Hotel's recently refurbished Grand Ballroom following the premiere of Mildred Pierce, the HBO mini-series in which she stars. Photographers swarmed the barriers on 54th Street outside the Ziegfeld Theater, where the premiere was held, and later outside the Plaza, clamouring for shots of the Oscar-winning actress, who looked decidedly chilly in her Stella McCartney cocktail dress.

But further downtown, at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in Soho another star, Johnny Cash, was being remembered at the opening of an exhibition of iconic shots of the singer, taken by Jim Marshall, one of the greatest music photographers of all time.
One of the chief photographers at the Monterey Pop Festival and at the original Woodstock, Marshall, with more than 500 album covers to his credit, was the only photographer granted backstage access at the Beatles' last concert. 

Marshall, who died last year aged 74, knew Johnny Cash since 1962, became close friends and shot photographs for five of his album covers, capturing him as no other photographer did. 
The Morrison Hotel Gallery exhibition and sale focuses specifically on Marshall's extensive Johnny Cash archive, and features approximately 20 prints.
