Markus Klinko's work is as familiar as Britney's dance moves. His images have defined significant moments in pop culture. Remember Beyoncé in that bejewelled top, throwing diva shapes on the album cover for Dangerously in Love? That's him.

So if you're the photographer who has captured some of the world's biggest celebrities, from Bowie to Billie, which of your images would you choose?

"Markus Klinko: Iconic" showcases one image, chosen by Markus, for every year from 2000 to 2021.

"In the last 10 to 15 years, the art world of photography had a very strong focus on the '60s and '70s, but I wasn't a photographer then. During lockdown in 2020, I could feel this nostalgia emerge for anything 2000, which has been my signature because that's where some of my most well-known work was created. Now it's becoming fashionable."

His luminous portraits document the larger-than-life icons of 21st-century pop culture. Taken over 21 years, the images comprise a chronological archive of the era's most creative, diverse and compelling celebrities.

"When photographing an artist, I always desire to create a work that truly defines them and can serve as a milestone in pop culture history. Those are ambitious and lofty goals, but it is what I am thinking about when I pick up my camera." ~ Markus Klinko

Get ready to awaken your nostalgia as we return to the noughties (2000-09), the teenies (2013-19), the early twenties (2020 - 21) and the inbetweenies (2010-12) to celebrate 21 years of iconic photography by Markus Klinko.
