Paris Photo New York 2020Michael Hoppen's Highlights May 1, 2020
This week we present you with our fourth Viewing Room, to close the month of April and round up our Paris Photo New York offering.
I hope you enjoy my personal selection of highlights, which include individual works that resonate with me by Japanese photographers Katsuji Fukuda, Sohei Nishino and Iwao Yamawaki.
Also featured are pieces by Eamonn Doyle and Tim Walker as we take you through the story of each work and the artists' influences; from material as diverse as the maps traditionally used by pilgrims to navigate holy sites to 19th century concave mirrors.
As always I look forward to receiving your comments, queries and questions.

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.

EAMONN DOYLEArmory Art Fair, New York - Featured artist February 29, 2016
“Returning to photography in recent years, I set out to work with what I knew. As a long-term resident of Parnell Street in Dublin’s north inner city, there was a wealth of photographic subjects on my doorstep. It’s an old working class area, now quite multicultural. At times it’s edgy and raw and vibrant, while at others, it seems half-sunk in a weary pathos. This set of photographs came about over a long reflective period in which I was re-reading Beckett.”
- Eamonn Doyle.
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.

NEW BOOK: Eamonn Doylepreview here June 10, 2015
"Eamonn Doyle’s first book, “i”, which was self published last year to great acclaim, has already established him as having something new to offer on the tired subject of street photography. His graphic images of the elderly of Dublin taken from above were both refreshing and very strong graphically.
With this new series of work he has come back down to street level and made a series of scenarios showing the intricacies, and indeed mysteries of life on the Dublin streets. The images are often details of a wider take and are the kind of observations we all make when we walk along, but would never dream of capturing." - Martin Parr
The much anticipated book 'ON' by Eamonn Doyle
will launch @ Photo Ireland, Friday July 3rd 2015
EAMONN DOYLEAipad 2015 - Special Feature April 16, 2015
Eamonn Doyle’s (b. 1969) ‘Beckettian’ portraits of elderly inhabitants of his native Dublin are a bold new presentation of a familiar genre. At once candid and composed, they capture the colour and frailty of the human condition in an urban environment. His timeless characters provide a meditation on the act of photography itself, of fleeting encounters captured, a transient moment immortalised. Doyle’s debut photobook ‘i’ released in 2014 was described by Martin Parr as ‘the best photo book in a decade.’
“I started photographing in and around Dublin city centre in the late 1980s, but I took something of a hiatus from photography in the late 1990s in order to concentrate on music. Returning to photography in recent years, I set out to work with what I knew. As a long-term resident of Parnell Street in Dublin’s north inner city, there was a wealth of photographic subjects on my doorstep. It’s an old working class area, now quite multicultural. At times it’s edgy and raw and vibrant, while at others, it seems half-sunk in a weary pathos. The pictures show only fragments of possible narratives, but for me, every life has weight and drama, even if its meaning is ultimately elusive.” - Eamonn Doyle
16 - 18 April, New York.
