From daguerreotypes to contemporary prints we offer a wide range of works by major artists of the 8th Art.
Photography literally “paint with light” is a technical and mechanical means to maintain a graphical representation of times, objects or people. But it is also a means of expression more or less abstract, signed by the author and whose objectivity is equivalent to any artistic work. Long locked in imitation of painting (nude, still life, scene of daily life, seascapes, portraits, etc.), photography has found his own artistic path with the emergence of surrealism.
Collectors of vintage, modern and contemporary photography, you can complete your albums and collections with these sales, black and white or color, they refer to the pioneering spirit of the nineteenth century or the great names of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries (Nadar, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, Brassai, Man Ray, Willy Ronis, Eugène Atget, Lucien Clergue, Bettina Rheims, Helmut Newton, Nobuyoshi Araki, Philip Lorca DiCorcia, Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Diane Arbus, Andres Serrano, Robert Mapplethorpe, David LaChapelle, …).
