September 26 - November 28, 2009

On September 26, 2009, KMR Arts will open it latest exhibit, “Paris à La Mode” which will include works by Roger Catherineau, Georges Dambier, William Klein, Jacques Henri Lartigue, Jean Moral and Louis Stettner. “Paris: à la Mode” will contain photographs that evoke moments of style, grace and fashion. As McCarver Root says, “From the prewar images of Jean Moral for Harper’s Bazaar to William Klein’s mod interpretations of fashion’s shift in the 1960’s, the influence of twentieth century Paris is limitless.”

Highlight exhibition: Chip Hooper

Chip Hooper (b. 1962) is a California based artist whose work follows in the tradition of photographers profoundly inspired by the Pacific Ocean such as Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and Minor White. Though there are hints of Hiroshi Sugimoto and even Robert Adams in his meticulous and pristine images, Hooper has developed his unique contemporary vision. In doing so, he has refined the expressive power of landscape photography through his meditative studies. Hooper explores the subject matter of sea, sky and atmosphere, yielding compositions that are spiritual and minimal at the same time.
