For decades, Neil Young has served as muse and subject for some of rock's most legendary photographers. "Long May You Run: A Neil Young Retrospective," an exhibition on view at New York's Morrison Hotel Gallery through December 26th – and opening at the gallery's Maui location on January 13th – features images of the singer-songwriter stretching from the Buffalo Springfield days up through his recent performances with current live band Promise of the Real, as captured by Julie Gardner, Joel Bernstein, Henry Diltz and Danny Clinch. Below see a selection of images from the show, with commentary from the respective photographers.

Lost in the Moment With Promise of the Real

Gardner: "This picture is just so 'Neil.' Even though he is onstage with the band (Promise of the Real), this shot feels quite intimate. Neil is so completely and so intensely focused.

"Neil moves from intensely, almost 'private' moments on stage where he is completely one with his music to times where he is interacting with the band, to moments where he is connecting with the audience. His shows are a dance like this – in and out of intense, private moments to sharing and lightness."
