Exhibition Presents June 15 through June 30, 2018

Award-winning fashion, celebrity photographer and director Markus Klinko is pleased to present “2000s”, an exclusive exhibition featuring the decade’s most iconic photographic images. The gallery has partnered with FujiFilm and will host several in-gallery artist appearances: Saturday, June 16th from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm, Saturday June 23rd from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm and Saturday June 30th, 2018 from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm at Mouche Gallery 340 N Beverly Dr., Beverly Hills, CA 90210.

For me, this collection goes beyond celebrity photography and more so defines a greater cultural connection. The early 2000’s 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 it how it has helped form our future.” – Markus Klinko

Klinko and his subjects

Throughout the years, Markus Klinko has become one of the most recognizable celebrity photographers across the globe. For his upcoming exhibition, “2000s”, Mouche Gallery has assembled a collection of famous images from his archives. The collection depicts a variety of pop culture milestones that have truly defined the decade of the early 2000’s. 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.

Klinko’s works were recently displayed in a New York Subway station with a large-scale photographic installation and interactive displays celebrating the late, great David Bowie. The installation was unveiled earlier this month and runs until May 13. It coincides with the opening of Bowie Is – an exhibition celebrating the musician’s contribution to popular culture – at the Brooklyn Museum.

The centerpiece of the takeover was an installation that stretched across 30 metal ‘L beams’ and was seen at either end of the station from steps leading down to the platform. It features black-and-white photographs of Bowie as the Thin White Duke – a persona he adopted in the mid- 1970s and taken by Masayoshi Sukita and Markus Klinko.

As David Bowie’s and Iman’s photographer for over 15 years, Klinko’s client list reads as a who’s who of Hollywood royalty. Other notable pop culture icons that will be featured in the exhibit include: Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell, Kelis, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West and more.

“Mouche Gallery in Beverly Hills is honored to present this exhibition in collaboration with FUJIFILM North America Corporation, and is thrilled to add Markus Klinko to its prestigious roster of internationally acclaimed photographers. We look forward to continuing the tradition of featuring museum quality art and photographs at the forefront of culture.” – Keiko Noah, Gallerist & Principal: Mouche Gallery

Made possible by FUJIFILM North America Corporation, “2000s” will feature a rare retrospective collection of select cameras and lenses used by Klinko to photograph these images and will be installed at Mouche Gallery. As one of the earliest adopters of digital post-production, Klinko pioneered a style that widely influenced trends in current fashion and celebrity photography. Klinko credits his usage of the FUJIFILM GX680III, a 6x8cm medium format system, in conjunction with FUJICHROME PROVIA 100F for the vibrant palette and exceptionally high resolution of his work. In 2001, Klinko also started shooting with the FUJIFILM FinePix S1 Pro, the early predecessor of the current line of the FUJIFILM X Series and GFX system. A previously unseen series of new images, taken in 2018 with the FUJIFILM GFX medium format mirrorless system, will be unveiled on June 14th, featuring re-emerging signature ’00s staples, connecting his works from past and present. All of Klinko’s works to be featured in “2000’s” were created with FUJIFILM cameras and/or film products.

Given the exhibition’s fashion and celebrity culture focus, thirteen of Klinko’s most celebrated images will be sold via Paddle8 (http://www.paddle8.com/auction/cfda) to benefit the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Foundation to help support its programs dedicated to fashion education and professional development.

ABOUT MARKUS KLINKO:

Markus Klinko is an award-winning, international fashion/celebrity photographer and director, who has worked with many of today’s most iconic stars of film, music, and fashion.

Klinko has photographed Beyonce, Lady Gaga, David Bowie, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Kanye West, Anne Hathaway, Kate Winslet, Will Smith, Eva Mendes, Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell, and Iman. His editorial clients include Vogue, GQ, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, and Interview. Brands such as Lancôme, L’Oréal Paris, Nike, Hugo Boss, Anna Sui, Pepsi, Skyy Vodka, and Remy Martin have hired Klinko to create advertising campaigns. His campaign for Keep A Child Alive raised over one million dollars for children with AIDS in just 3 days.

Born in Switzerland of French, Italian, Jewish, and Hungarian descent, Klinko spent his early years training to become a classical harp soloist. He studied at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris. Later, Klinko signed an exclusive recording contract with EMI Classics, as well as a management contract with Columbia Artists Management. He received the Grand Prix de Disque for his recording of French harp music, with members of the orchestra of the Paris Opera Bastille. Klinko performed in recitals and as a featured soloist with symphony orchestras around the world. He was also regularly featured in such publications as Vogue Italia, Vanity Fair, GQ, The New York Times, Madame Figaro, Stereo Review, and Ongaku no Tomo.

After a hand injury, Klinko decided to become a fashion photographer and retired from his international concert and recording career. During that time, he met Indrani, who later became a regular collaborator in her role as his studio’s digital post production artist and photo editor.

Isabella Blow discovered Klinko’s work while at the London Sunday Times and commissioned cover stories from the emerging photographer. Around the same time, Ingrid Sischy, at Interview magazine hired Klinko for various shoots. Iman and David Bowie followed, giving the up and coming photographer a chance to photograph them for their respective book (I am Iman) and album covers (Heathen).

From there, he went on to create some of the most iconic album covers of his time, including Beyonce’s Dangerously in Love, and Mariah Carey’s The Emancipation of Mimi.

Many of Klinko’s famous celebrity photographs can be seen in his coffee table book ICONS (Perseus). Lincoln Center in New York presented an art exhibit showcasing many prints from the book and since, art galleries and museums in Europe (Opera Gallery, Monaco) and the USA (National Portrait Gallery, Washington) have featured his work.

SPOTTED: TEGAN MARIE AT NEW YORK FASHION WEEK


Young Country Newcomer All Aglow Attending The Runway Shows

 

Warner Music Nashville’s Tegan Marie glowed while attending New York Fashion Week on Monday and Tuesday (9/11-12). At just 13 years old, her sophisticated sense of style was on full display while sitting front row at Anna Sui. This fashion bucket list moment checks another one off the list following her record deal signing last month. The rising star is the youngest female artist to sign a major label Country deal in 45 years.

With a larger-than-life voice, the budding singer-songwriter was discovered by leading Gen Z girls’ media platform Sweety High when her father uploaded videos of her cover songs to their site. Tegan Marie – also a Radio Disney Country artist – since catapulted into the national spotlight with several high-profile media performances and appearances including ABC’s Good Morning America and PBS’ star-studded special Smokey Robinson: The Gershwin Prize and the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards. Last year, the Flint, MI, native released the song, “Lucky Me,” to benefit the children affected by the water crisis in her hometown. Continuing the momentum, her breathtaking rendition of Florida Georgia Line’s #1 hit song, “H.O.L.Y.,” racked up over 17 million views on Facebook alone. Tegan has amassed over 75 million video views and receives over five million engagements online each month. She’s also had a string of impressive performances, sharing the stage with singers Cam, Smokey Robinson and duetting with Kelsea Ballerini. This past spring Tegan appeared at CMA Music Festival on the Radio Disney Country stage and at California’s popular Country music festival Stagecoach to great acclaim. Critics praised her performance with USA Today hailing, “[Tegan] Marie has the personality and the voice of a future star, and she definitely has the always hard-to-define ‘It.’” She recently wrapped a six-city tour with Pepsi MidAmerica and is currently writing for her debut album.
