JULIAN LENNON REVEALS SOME OF HIS FAVORITE FINE ART PHOTOS FROM HIS TRAVELS AROUND THE WORLD IN STUNNING NEW BOOK - FROM A MAJESTIC HORSE IN URUGUAY TO AN ENCHANTING SHOT OF PRINCESS CHARLENE

  • The avid photographer and singer-songwriter went about selecting more than 200 images for the book
  • Images vary from sweeping landscapes to candid portraits both in color and black and white
  • Lennon's tome, titled Life's Fragile Moments, is currently available to pre-order 

Snapshots from Julian Lennon's epic travels across the globe and life experiences have been catalogued in a stunning new coffee table book.

The avid photographer and singer-songwriter went about selecting 200 images from more than a decade's worth of experiences around the globe to share with his fans. 

Offering an exclusive sneak peek to DailyMail.com, the images vary from sweeping landscapes to candid portraits both in color, and black and white. 

Lennon says that 'main thread which connects the book [titled Life's Fragile Moments and currently available to pre-order], is the fragility in the faces of the people and the delicate state of nature in the landscapes and cloudscapes.'

Touching on his style of photography, the artist who is based in Europe adds: 'It's tough to label one's own style… I just try to approach every capture with authenticity and honesty. 

'I always want the vibe to reflect what I saw in the moment so that others may experience it in a similar, organic way.' 

While Lennon has been exhibiting and selling his photography for many years, this marks his first fine art photography book.

Publishing house teNeues deems it 'an outstanding coffee table book that shows complex, diverse sides of his creative spirit' and a 'must-have for any collector.'

Along with imagery, the book features 'moving' text where Lennon offers a 'personal insight into his inspiration.' 

While the photographer says it's 'impossible' to pick a favorite shot, he says he does have 'a special place in my heart' for several photos.

One of Lennon's prized photos includes one titled 'Hope,' which he took in 2014 while on a charity-focused trip with his non-profit, The White Feather Foundation, to Ethiopia. 

The black and white image shows a young girl smiling slightly as she directs her bright eyes at the camera.

A more recent image beloved by Lennon captures a 'beautiful, majestic' horse he met on his travels to Uruguay for the first time this year. 

For the book cover, Lennon selected a candid photo of him photographing Princess Charlene of Monaco from behind as she looks at herself in a mirror. 

The image, titled 'Charlene Wittstock #14' and taken in 2011, was one of many snapped by Lennon of the now-Princess, literally 10 minutes before her civil wedding.

After spending months compiling his photography book, Lennon is now looking ahead to a music release this summer, 'as well as a photo exhibition in Europe, which will be announced very soon.'

He adds: 'Following that, my main focus will be to complete my forthcoming memoir.'

Life's Fragile Moments, published by teNeues this fall, is currently available to pre-order via www.teneues.com
