After a successful 10 years at EMI as the Director of Marketing and Production, Peter Blachley took his love for music and parlayed it into the founding of Morrison Hotel Gallery in 2001, now one of the most prolific houses for fine art music photography in the world.  Along with his two co-founders, he has brought both New York galleries - one in SoHo, the second on the Bowery - into the limelight by representing more than 70 photographers worldwide.  The brand has also forged a number of international gallery partnerships and recently initiated the launch of Morrison Hotel Gallery publishing with its first release, Ken Regan's Bob Dylan portfolio.
