Founded in 2006 by Christophe Guye, Christophe Guye Galerie is one of the leading galleries for contemporary fine art photography. The gallery represents national and international artists who consider the medium of photography within the larger context of current art practices. Using a camera or light-sensitive material to express their artistic practices, their works notably contribute to the historical discourse of art, as well as to the expanding medium of photography and to the evolution of contemporary art at large.
With four to six shows per year, the programme varies between solo and group exhibitions that include works by gallery as well as guest artists and are occasionally organised by invited curators. In addition, the gallery embraces the long-term counselling of collections and the fostering of new collectors, as well as the curating and organising of exhibitions in collaboration with institutions, museums, and partner galleries. The gallery participates in international fairs such as Paris Photo, Photo London, Unseen Amsterdam and Photo Shanghai.
Moreover, the gallery offers limited edition art books from independent publishing houses such as amana, Tokyo as well as Mörel Books and Nobody Publishing, London, among others.
