I love how Seydou Keita’s images use the formality of 19th century bourgeoisie portraiture in an unmistakably African setting. Regarded as the father of African photography, his work continues to inspire countless artists.
Salgado left a promising career as an economist to chase his dream of being a photographer. He obviously loves and cares about the people he meets and brings his understanding of economics and how the world works to his assignments.
There’s something very British about Nick Knight’s photography. His works mixes both punk and old-world elegance. He’s the Alexander McQueen of photography (or maybe Alexander McQueen was the Nick Knight of fashion?).
I remember vividly when I first saw Nadav Kander’s work: I was a young art buyer at BBDO New York when his agent came to show us his books. Bill was a great agent, but Kander’s photographs didn’t need any selling.
I launched Aurélie’s Gallery a year ago with just 3 photographers. After this first year, there are things I would do differently if I did them today. Live and learn!
I started Aurelie’s Gallery to champion and support photographers I love.
Case in point, jazz photographer Jimmy Katz.
Read about the best and worst experiences I h since launching the gallery.
From Tehran, Iran, to New York, Kourosh Sotoodeh followed his passion for photography.
The launch, and the following days… My entrepreneurial journey continues!
“Reappropriation” is a collaborative effort between Kiritin Beyer, a French & Danish photographer, and Parris Jaru, a Jamaica-born painter.
