Galerie l’Atelier works with a selection of both established and emerging contemporary artists, with a main focus on photography. As artists ourselves, through our international travels for exhibitions, festivals and art fairs as well as with our involvement in the NY photographic community at the International Center of Photography NY, we have aligned with fellow artists around the globe and engaged peers with whom we feel a strong connection via their work, subjects and approach.
Galerie l’Atelier provides an active working platform for artists and a genuine opportunity to showcase their work in prestigious locations, affording them access to a select clientele from art fairs, private and public events, corporate clients, interior designers, art consultants as well as private collectors. At Galerie l'Atelier, connoisseurs and collectors are shown a broad selection of exciting artists allowing them to discover new talents.
Galerie l’Atelier aims to support and encourage the creation and development of the artists through the promotion of the work in fairs, institutions and private clients from the proceeds of the artwork sales.
We are drawn to work and artists for whom the physical relationship to the medium is central to the approach and we are passionate about the tangible and material aspect of the media itself. In addition to hand printed silver gelatin prints done in the darkroom, we have a selection of artists who use alternative printing methods such as chemigrams and palladium platinum artworks, as well as photograms where the relationship between the light and the paper is essential. We seek to represent the dynamic range of photographic creation today, from conceptual photography to the re-invented traditional approach.
One common thread that links all our artists is their relationship with primary elements. We look for connections with light, earth, minerals, air, water or heat. We represent work of the highest quality and look for artists with strong narrative of their personal vision in their photographs, either autobiographically as with Jehsong Baak’s “one last goodbye” or by a study of their own social environment as we observe in Wendy Paton’s “Visage de Nuit” or with the cosmologic research found in the work of Antonia Kuo.
Founded by photographer, fine art printer and ICP member Nicolas Auvray, Galerie L’Atelier is based in New York.
