ALLENTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA, February 10, 2010 – Fetish photographer Dirk Hooper will have ten pieces on display at the “Fetish Valentine 2” group exhibition.

Hooper also participated in the first “Fetish Valentine” exhibition in 2009. “Art N Soul is expanding the show this year and making it bigger than ever, so I more than doubled my photos for the exhibition and decided to offer something special to support them.” Hooper produced a limited edition print that will only be available at “Fetish Valentine 2”. The print features Toxic Goddess Dame Lebeau in the photo “Inked” which has been displayed in three different juried exhibitions and two other curated art shows in the past year.
“Fetish Valentine 2” will have work from five different artists, a rope bondage demonstration and a live fetish photo shoot. Guests are encouraged to wear fetish attire and even to participate in the live events. Opening night for “Fetish Valentine 2” will be Saturday, February 13 at Art N Soul Studios at 516 W.
