Markus Klinko, Award-Winning Fashion and Celebrity Photographer, Presents a Decade of World-Renowned Work in “2000s” Exhibition at Mr Musichead Gallery
Opening Reception: LATE JANUARY TBD
Award-winning fashion, celebrity photographer and director, Markus Klinko is pleased to present “2000s”, an exclusive exhibition featuring some of the decade’s most iconic photographic images.
Throughout the years, Markus Klinko has become one of the most recognizable celebrity photographers across the globe. For Klinko’s upcoming exhibition, “2000s”, Mr Musichead Gallery will showcase a collection of famous images depicting a variety of pop culture milestones that have truly defined the decade of the early 2000s.
Markus Klinko has worked with stars such as Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Kanye West and Lady Gaga. Klinko had the opportunity to photograph David Bowie for the cover for his 2002 album “Heathen” and again for the cover of GQ’s “Men of the Year” issue. These rare and exquisite photos, which made their west coast debut at Mr Musichead Gallery, reveal Bowie’s artistic spirit and impeccable style. Many of Klinko’s famous celebrity photographs are featured in his coffee table book ICONS and have been displayed in galleries and museums around the world.
Highlighted works include: Beyonce’s Dangerously in Love album cover; a series of Mary J. Blige album covers documenting her meteoric rise to superstardom; and images from Klinko’s wildly successful David Bowie Unseen international exhibition. With these works and more to see, Klinko can be credited for capturing some of the most legendary moments in each of his subject’s careers.
“For me, this collection goes beyond celebrity photography and more so defines a greater cultural connection. The early 2000s was a very influential time of fashion, music, and entertainment that we are seeing resurface today. Being able to capture it photographically gives us a window into our past and how it has helped form our future.” - Markus Klinko
