Atlas Gallery was founded in 1994 and is one of the foremost galleries worldwide dealing exclusively in photography. The gallery embraces photography in all its forms, with extensive holdings of work by 20th Century masters as well as representing a diverse range of contemporary photographers. From classic vintage photography, photojournalism and fashion to experimental and art photography, Atlas offers extensive expertise on every aspect of the medium. The gallery deals in high quality works by a comprehensive list of the most famous and highly regarded photographers of the last one hundred years. The gallery has sole representation of a significant proportion of the photographers on this list and thus has unparalleled and exclusive access to many rare and singular works. The gallery hosts approximately six exhibitions a year and has a presence at major international art fairs including Paris Photo, Photo London, Photo Shanghai, Art Miami and Art Basel Hong Kong.
Atlas Gallery works closely with both private and corporate clients to assemble unique and world-class art collections and advises acquisition departments of museums and public collections worldwide. We research, source and secure works on behalf of our clients through extensive connections in both the photography and art worlds. Through its contemporary programme, launched in 2012, Atlas is also active in supporting and nurturing work by both young and emerging artists and can readily assist collectors with exposure to new talent. The gallery’s collections are always available to view by appointment and our professional and knowledgeable experts will always be delighted to advise on any photographer’s work. Uniting vintage, modern and contemporary under one roof allows us to demonstrate the continued relevance of the medium, to broaden perceptions and develop a wider appreciation of photography as part of the art world.
From first time collectors to interior designers and major museums, the emphasis of the gallery is on quality of service, expertise and high levels of professional information and art-handling. From advising on starting a collection or just acquiring a single piece for a specific location, to custom framing, shipping, installation, storage, conservation and restoration, we offer a full and bespoke service dependant on your individual needs. We recognise that collecting art is a highly personal experience and want our clients to appreciate maximum fulfilment from both purchasing and owning a special or unique work of art. Over the last decade the art business has developed and expanded beyond all recognition into a worldwide industry, sometimes with baffling and complex issues of provenance and quality and our experienced staff aim to guide all our clients through every aspect of the market.
