German portrait photographer Martin Häusler brings the latest installation of his works to London with The Martin Häusler Sanctum Soho Photography Takeover, which opens on Thursday 8th September for a 5-week residence.

Following successful exhibitions in in Stuttgart, Los Angeles and his home town of Heidelberg, this latest collection will showcase Häusler’s works and feature British talent including the late Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead captured at his favourite Los Angeles hangout, a world first unveiling of a 3D life size print of Queen’s Brian May plus other international artists from the world of music, acting and entertainment.

With Häusler having shot the album photography for Meat Loaf’s upcoming album ‘Braver Than We Are’ (out in the UK on Friday 9th September), there will also be exclusive prints from the shoot on display to mark the release. Sanctum Soho Hotel provides a natural setting for the Häusler’s debut exhibition in London, with both music and imagery being at the very heart of the hotel’s décor and ambience.

The installation will be opened with a launch event on Thursday 8th September at 7.00pm, which invited guests are welcome to attend and members of the public will be able to enjoy the works from that same evening, with prints located throughout the hotel in the lobby, restaurant/bar and roof terrace. There is no admission charge for visitors wishing to view the prints.
