Morrison Hotel Gallery & Bookmarc Present: ECHO HOME The Photography of Jamie Hince, THE KILLS Shows in Los Angeles To Benefit Rational Animal Charity
MORRISON HOTEL GALLERY Saturday, November 1st through Tuesday, November 11th Sunset Marquis Hotel 1200 Alta Loma Road West Hollywood
Monday – Wednesday 10 AM to 8 PM Thursday – Saturday 10 AM to 11 PM Sunday – 10 AM to 7 PM
On Saturday, November 1st, Morrison Hotel Gallery and Bookmarc present ECHO HOME, bringing the photography of indie icon JAMIE HINCE of THE KILLS to their galleries in Los Angeles. An opening reception, which is open to the public, took place on November 1st at Bookmarc (8407 Melrose Place, Los Angeles). The images will be on display to the public and available for purchase at Morrison Hotel Gallery, located inside the Sunset Marquis Hotel (1200 Alta Loma Road, West Hollywood), on Saturday, November 1st from 10 am to 7 pm and will be up through November 11th.
Proceeds from this event benefit Rational Animal – a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing public awareness to help at-risk animals. One of their signature community service projects, Mother’s Comfort Project, sews and delivers thousands of beds to animals in shelters.
Morrison Hotel Gallery and Bookmarc share a spirit of sophistication, swagger, and authenticity. Both brands have a flair for making trendsetting decisions. Jamie Hince is a likeminded soul with his distinct mix of iconography and intellect. The English guitarist, singer, and songwriter is a genre-defining musician with a signature sensibility that encompasses grit, humor, and sultry expressiveness. As a musician, he’s worked with cult acts such as Fiji, Scarfo, and Blyth Power, but he’s best known for his mesmerizing and sensual indie rock with The Kills, which he co-founded with singer, songwriter, guitarist, vocalist and fashion icon Alison Mosshart in 2000. To date, The Kills have released three critically acclaimed albums. Hince is one of the rare breeds of artistically fluid musicians that can authoritatively work in other mediums. Prior to the ECHO HOME exhibit, Jamie Hince was in Los Angeles to play with The Kills Halloween night at the Forum with tour-mates Queens Of The Stone Age.
The idea of making this a charity focused exhibition began when Rational Animal charity reached out to The Kills with an opportunity to embrace their inner animal by creating a photo for their latest campaign in support of their signature Mother’s Comfort Project, which sews and delivers beds to homeless animals in shelters in the greater New York City area. Alison and Jamie jumped on board without hesitation creating a beautiful black and white portrait of Alison with his dog Archie curling up in bed, with an homage to Terry O’Neill’s photograph of Bridget Bardot sharing her bed with her dog. This image was used this year to promote fundraising for Mother’s Comfort Project. With the ECHO HOME event, Rational Animal will also debut its original series of notecards Artists with Animals at Bookmarc. This set of 10 cards includes the O’Neill’s Bridget Bardot photo and features legendary artists with animals taken by the A-list of music photographers represented by the Morrison Hotel Gallery.
Other images include, Jamie’s wife, the iconic supermodel, Kate Moss during one of their trips to the island of St. Barths.
