MIAMI (AFP) - Julian Lennon - the oldest son of the voice of the Beatles - will exhibit a new collection of his melancholy photographs, called Alone, at a prestigious art show to raise money for his charity.

In his second visit to Miami to promote his photography, Lennon is selling about a dozen prints with prices ranging from US$3,500 to US$5,500 (S$4,263 to S$6,700), modest by the standards of the popular international Art Basel Miami Beach show.

"I've been a philanthropist for all my life, and... I've had many involvements in humanitarian and environmental issues," Lennon, 49, told AFP, referring to his WhiteFeather Foundation.

"Whatever work I do, I've always put at least ten per cent aside (for) my foundation," he said ahead of the show, which runs from Dec 6-9.
