Hogie’s Heroes exhibition will be taking place in the newly opened Trafalgar St. James this February 2018 (1st-28th) and will be showcasing a number of unseen signed iconic images from celebrity photographer Dave Hogan’s portfolio in various areas of the hotel. Members of the public will be able to view the exhibition from 09.00hrs>22.00hrs daily (no admission charge).
Dave Hogan has photographed some of the most iconic names from the entertainment industry including Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Bob Geldof, David Bowie, Madonna, Prince, The Rolling Stones, Freddie Mercury and more recently Adele, Stormzy and Chris Martin. With over 40 years’ experience in the industry, he has established himself as one of the world’s leading celebrity photographers.
A number of the prints will be signed by the celebrities and there will be the option to purchase the bespoke prints via a global on-line auction in collaboration with eBay which will be live from 18th February to the 28th 2018. All proceeds from this auction will be donated to 3 key charities - Teenage Cancer Trust, The Haven + London and Cancer Research UK.
To add to the excitement and help those looking to retox after a dry January stint, a selection of ‘rock-star’ themed cocktails will be available, all served on coasters printed from the exhibition; an Instagram heaven.
Sir Bob Geldof, who features within the exhibition, quoted ‘’Big’ Dave has been a ubiquitous figure at every social/political/artistic event in London for the last 40 years. His magnificent photographs both from the actual moment and from his studio tell the stories of our time for good or ill. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like Dave and respect his craft/art and more importantly respect him as a person. A very good man who contributed hugely and magnanimously and continually to band aid/live aid by using his great skill for the benefit of others. He is a superb photographer’.
David Walliams stated ‘It’s an honour to be part of Hogie’s Heroes exhibition’ and Piers Morgan added ‘I flew around the world with Dave in the late 80’s and early 90’s, interviewing the world’s greatest stars, and he was the best showbiz snapper of them all – incredibly hard working, a brilliant photographer and always with a razor sharp eye for a great story or picture’.
