Charity News by Modern Rocks Gallery : Award-winning, international fashion and celebrity photographer Markus Klinko and Texas-based Modern Rocks Gallery today announced the launch of "Dangerously in Love with Houston: Modern Rocks Gallery / Markus Klinko Auction," an online auction of signed, first worldwide edition Beyoncé photographs with proceeds benefiting the Red Cross and its Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

The online auction will feature three 16"X20" photographs of Houston-native Beyoncé from the 2003 cover shoot of her debut solo album, Dangerously in Love, signed by Markus Klinko.

Fujifilm supports the auction with printing and mounting, while Broncolor will donate shipping of the photographs to auction winners. All money raised from the auctions will go to the Red Cross Houston and Gulf Coast relief efforts.

The auction is online at https://www.modernrocksgallery.com/hurricane-relief and begins at 2 pm CST, Wed., Aug. 30 and closes at 2 pm CST, Sat., Sept. 9, 2017.

"I met Beyonce first in 2000 as a member of Destiny's Child during a photo shoot for Vibe and later was hired to shoot the cover of Beyoncé's debut solo album, Dangerously in Love. The images in our Hurricane Harvey relief auction were shot at my Soho studio," said Klinko. "And, I remember this shoot as one of my favorite experiences. Beyoncé later shared that these photographs were her all-time favorites."

"It's a privilege to have the opportunity to support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The catastrophic impact on Houston and the Texas Gulf Coast will require months and years of recovery, relief and rebuilding. It's one way I can help raise funds and awareness for the people of Houston and the Texas Gulf Coast," added Klinko.

"We're grateful for Markus' tremendous generosity in this effort," Steven Walker, owner of Modern Rocks Gallery said. "Our heart aches for the people of Houston and the Gulf Coast, and we wanted to find a way to raise awareness and critical funds for the recovery and relief efforts there. Being able to feature these iconic images of Houston-born Beyoncé in this auction make the effort even more special."
