Julian Lennon: ATMOSPHERIA



Saturday, 18 February 2023 to Saturday, 1 April 2023

“The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.” - Chief Seattle

The William Turner Gallery is pleased to present Atmospheria, a collection of ethereal photographs by internationally acclaimed artist Julian Lennon. Lennon’s debut exhibition with William Turner Gallery will highlight the drama of nature’s atmospheric forces, revealing his passion for the environment and deep commitment to its preservation.

Lennon’s photographs serve allegorical vehicles in this time of heightened awareness for our planet’s peril. In surveillance of these ever-changing skies, Atmospheria celebrates the beauty of these vaporous vistas to inspire us to better revere and protect them. 

The collection is suffused with a sense of wonder and awe at the majesty of natural phenomena. Each image simultaneously evokes feelings of sweeping grandeur and indefinable yearning. Luminary, shape-shifting clouds, distinguished by the combings and crests of light and shadow, speak with gravitas and elegance. A portion of the proceeds from Atmospheria will benefit the White Feather Foundation (TWFF), Lennon’s nonprofit organization. Since its inception in 2007, TWFF has championed conservation projects worldwide. The foundation raises funds for Indigenous, environmental, education, health and clean water projects around the world. TWFF has saved native lands from being taken from Indigenous groups; brought clean water to developing communities; provided girls with educational scholarships; helped furnish and build schools in underprivileged areas; brought mobile ambulances to remote villages; assisted with disaster relief and brought meaningful social justice films to light. 


Artist ( Description ): 

Born in Liverpool, England, Julian Lennon began his artistic trajectory at a young age with an inherent gift for playing musical instruments. Those abilities would soon broaden into the cinematic and visual arts.

Julian has exhibited his artwork internationally including at the Venice Biennale; Art Miami; Art Cube, Paris; Contemporary Istanbul; Emmanuel Fremin Gallery, New York City; The International Art Project, Cap d’Ail, France; the Little Black Gallery, London; Photo House, Brussels; Urban Art House, Amsterdam; World Art Dubai; and Leica Galleries around the world.
