Paris Photo 2021Michael Hoppen's Highlights November 5, 2021
We are absolutely delighted to be returning to Paris Photo 2021 after our forced absence from art fairs – but especially Paris Photo which we have participated in for the past twenty-four editions. The fair means a lot to all of us in the photography community, so it is with great pleasure we return with what we hope will be a memorable event. Coming together under the banner of Paris Photo is a great opportunity for us to present photographs which we feel will enliven and entertain but also to inform and advance the tradition of this fascinating medium forward.
Our stand this year will represent some old and some new; much of it will be seen for the very first time.
Whilst artists such as Araki and Tim Walker will need no introduction, others who will accompany us such as Tetsuya Ichimura, Sian Davey, Eamonn Doyle and Akira Sato will show works that are less well known and, in some cases, their first outing publicly. This always energises us as we are so excited to see your reactions to new, rare and unseen works.
Our passion for Japanese photography will be very well represented by many of the greats and some unknown from Masatoshi Naito, Daido Moriyama, Miyako Ishiuchi, Akira Sato and Eikoh Hosoe, all of whom take great pride in their darkroom skills which will be plainly evident from their peerless prints.

ARAKI | Grand Diary of a Photo ManiacJune 19, 2020
'Searching a grid of mailboxes for Araki’s name in the anonymous lobby of a Tokyo apartment complex felt dangerously close to trespassing. I had been invited to meet him for the first time at this address, but the beige hallway seemed an unlikely choice for an artist who has courted controversy so flamboyantly throughout his career.'
This week we hear Lucy Fleming-Brown's account of her first meeting with Nobuyoshi Araki, in Tokyo.
Lucy is the gallery's resident Japanologist. She studied Japanese at Oxford University and travels regularly between London and Tokyo. Her research interests lie with post-war Japanese photography and experimental arts.
We invite you to join us in the Viewing Room via the button below, for available works, anecdotes, and much more.
NEWSLETTER WINTER '17Michael looks ahead to another exciting year for Michael Hoppen Gallery January 24, 2017
We begin 2017 with momentous world events surrounding us, and it seems churlish to talk about what our small gallery in London has planned for you for the year ahead, but having said that, I sincerely believe that in our own small way, we can all individually make a difference by what we do and how we behave. The world will continue to turn and we collectively can all make a difference by striving for excellence in doing what is right and continuing to create good diverse and interesting events around our daily lives. There are lots of positive things happening in the world of photography.

MHG NewsletterMichael looks ahead to an exciting year for the gallery February 23, 2016
We have been busy in Japan again and have some wonderful new work to show to you in London this year.
We are so proud to be able to bring Solitude of Ravens to our gallery. It has been a quest of mine for the past six years to exhibit this body of work. And now finally it is hanging in our gallery and hope you will make the journey and come to see it.
We have found that many more museums across Europe and America are also enjoying the fruits of Japanese photographers and our belief is still that it is not only some of the most interesting work to look at and collect, but it is of such quality and so beautifully produced, it still amazes us as to why it has taken so long to be embraced.
