Elton has decided to display his growing passion for photography at an exhibition in his adopted second home of Atlanta, Georgia, in the USA.
"I wanted this collection to be shown in Atlanta," Elton told US media at a packed lecture at Symphony Hall on October 24, 2000, near the new exhibition "This collection evolved from my being here. ... If people want to see it, they can come to the High."
Chorus of Light: Photographs from the Sir Elton John Collection is on display at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. It contains about 320 images by photographers like Richard Avedon, Diane Arbus, Walker Evans, Tina Modotti, Norman Parkinson, Irving Penn, Man Ray, Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Weston.
