Evoking visions of picturesque beaches from a time when Saint-Tropez sizzled, the Morrison Hotel Galley invites you to immerse yourself in this abundance of golden splendor with the summer issue now visible on, and with selected works on display in MHG locations.

To take advantage of Summer Issue and take a summer trip through Morrison Hotel Gallery’s other collections, visit or come see us in person.

Of all the photos in the exhibit, the 1964 photo of John Hamilton of Brigitte Bardot trying to calm down while filming a movie in Mexico is one of the most memorable. In the sweltering Cuautla, Mexico, suffering from heatstroke, she still looked bright.

“The unbearable heat continued throughout filming,” said Hamilton, “and the only respite given to Brigitte was the small bucket of water she used to cool her feet.”
