Fantasy Photographer Dirk Hooper in Hong Kong Group Exhibition

Press release June 25, 2010 Culture

Award-winning fantasy photographer Dirk Hooper will have ten photos on display June 27th during the “Accumulate” international art exhibition in Hong Kong, China.

HONG KONG, CHINA, June 21, 2010 – Award-winning fantasy photographer Dirk Hooper will have ten photos on display June 27th during the “Accumulate” international art exhibition in Hong Kong, China.  Hooper’s work will join dozens of other international artists at the grand opening of “That Gallery”.  The organizers of the art show describe “Accumulate” as an opportunity to bring together artists from around the word and to exhibit the combined imagination of these artists by showcasing multiple works in a confined space.

Hooper is excited to have work in Hong Kong.  “I’ve wanted to get a foothold in Asia for a while now and it’s hard to beat an exhibition in Hong Kong.  My dream is to get a show in Tokyo, but I’m thrilled with this first step,” Hooper said.  Known primarily for fetish photography, “Accumulate” presents a softer side of Hooper’s work.  “This is not an erotic art show, so I focused more on fantasy and glamour style portraits.  The style is the same, but this work is not as provocative as most of my shows lately,” Hooper explained.

Danger Darling and Scott Van Eck both do work as makeup artists in the ten photos Hooper has in the “Accumulate” exhibition.  The models represented in Hooper’s photos are:

  • Jade
  • Mistress Kitty
  • Princess Zoe
  • Toxic Goddess Aello
  • Toxic Goddess Dame Lebeau
  • Toxic Goddess Eclipse
  • Toxic Goddess Loki
  • Toxic Goddess Oshun
  • Toxic Goddess Rockelle
  • Toxic Goddess Selkie

“Accumulate” will open on Sunday, June 27th at 3:00 p. m. in Hong Kong, China.  “That Gallery” is located at Unit F Superluck Inds Centre, 45-53 Sha Tsui Rd.  Refreshments will be provided.
