Memory of Beyonce’s first solo album shoot draws celebrity photographer to Houston for show
Markus Klinko's photos of Beyonce, David Bowie, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga will be exhibited in a Houston gallery
Andrew Dansby : January 24, 2023 : Houston Chronicle
Twenty years ago, photographer Markus Klinko lost his pants, but he got the shot. Photography, he’ll tell you, requires both well-laid plans and instant improvisation. When he photographed Beyoncé Knowles in 2003, the shoot required a little of both.
Beyoncé was at the time 22 and quite successful thanks to Destiny’s Child, though hardly the global superstar she is today. Klinko was tasked with capturing an image for “Dangerously in Love,” the first solo recording in what would become a singular career. He’d shot the group when it was a quartet for Vibe magazine a few years earlier. Even then he had a feeling about the then teenage singer from Houston.
“I was above them on a catwalk and her mom was with me,” Klinko says. “I pointed and said, ‘Her, she’s going to be huge.’ Her mom said, ‘We know'.”

3D is the slightly misleading name of Nicole Longnecker Gallery's thought-provoking and intriguingly curated exhibit of sculptural works by four celebrated Texas artists: George Smith, Andy Feehan, Danville Chadbourne and Tim Glover. While all of the art on display is indeed two- or three-dimensional, an additional dimension is present as well, an experience beyond the height, weight and depth of each hanging or freestanding object, inspiring the viewer to see the world in an unforeseen way.
