The Betsy Hotel on Miami Beach will be showcasing “The Lost Beatles and the Lost Rolling Stones Photographs”, taken by Bob Bonis between 1964-1966. This is the first time these photos are displayed in Florida, and Art Basel.
The photos will make their debut on December 3rd and will be displayed along the Betsy’s public spaces, including the lobby, hallways and and along BLT Steak.
Bob Bonis was the tour manager for both the Rolling Stones and The Beatles first US tours and he took thousands of photographs but never made them public. Fifteen years following his death, Bonis’ son, Alex, took the images to rock n roll memorabilia specialist Larry Marion who will curate the first South Florida showcase of the images. He first had an exhibition mounted in 2011 at his NFA Gallery and then at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland among others.
The exhibition at The Betsy will be free and open to the public daily. Special tours and programming is planned for Art Basel week.
The Los Rolling Stones Photographs (2010) and The Lost Beatles Photographs (2011) were published by Harper Collins.
