July 30, 2023: The White Room Gallery, 2415 Main Street in Bridgehampton, is featuring iconic pop culture works by renowned Swiss photographer Markus Klinko, who partnered with Rolls-Royce for an event at the gallery on Saturday, July 29th.

Klinko, an award-winning international fashion and celebrity photographer and director, has worked with many iconic film, music, and fashion stars. He shot the cover of Beyoncé’s “Dangerously in Love,” which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this June, numerous intimate and striking portraits of David Bowie, and most recently, PAPER Magazine’s cover of rap sensation Ice Spice. These stars are the focus of Klinko’s portraits that will be on display at The White Room.

“Rolls-Royce is an iconic brand that honors artistry and craftsmanship,” said Liz

Shafton, “We are proud to be part of the celebration and to feature the boundless potential of our Ghost vehicles. With a pristine blank canvas for personalization, Ghost offers unparalleled quality, a truly engaging drive, and bottomless V12 thrust. We look forward to providing the opportunity to explore this charismatic model with guests and during the exhibit.”

“These images truly represent a moment in time,” said Klinko, who performed as an international classical harp soloist and EMI Classics recording artist before taking up photography in 1994 when a hand injury ended his career. “It’s fascinating to see them transform from serving one purpose to resurfacing in other ways. Seeing stars such as Spice and Billie Eilish move from the covers of magazines onto the walls of galleries within days is entirely unprecedented. I am proud to share these latest works with a fast-growing collector base.”

Klinko will also display his artistic collaboration with Emerald Laser and Erchonia, a global leader in manufacturing and developing low-level laser therapy technology. This project, titled “The Angel Factory,” explores the aesthetic appeal of futuristic treatment methods in Hollywood.

In addition, he has photographed the likes of Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Anne Hathaway, Eva Mendes, Naomi Campbell, Iman, and many more.
