Lumiere Gallery, founded in 2001 by Natalia Grigorieva-Litvinskaya, specializes in the art of photography. In the spring of 2021, a new space of the Lumiere Gallery opened in a 19th-century mansion on Bolshaya Polyanka Street in Moscow.
The gallery presents vintage, late and modern prints of limited-edition Russian authors, as well as classics of Soviet photography, including Boris Ignatovich, a follower of the constructivist movement, Arkady Shaikhet, a master of reportage, Naum Granovsky, a chronicler of Moscow life, Vladimir Lagrange, an observer of the Thaw era, and many others.
As a member of the international photographic market for many years, the gallery has established strong ties with photographers and foundations, thanks to which the gallery hosts the best examples of outstanding masters of European and American photography: Elliott Erwitt, William Klein, Sheila Metzner, Steve Schapiro, Greg Gorman and others. The gallery actively works with young but already established authors, such as Laurent Chéhère, Rob Woodcox, Paul Brouns, Alice Zilberberg.
During its existence, the gallery has organized more than 200 exhibitions, and published 11 monographs on photography of the Soviet period.
Artists presented at Cosmoscow 2021: Laurent Chéhère, Paul Brouns, Rob Woodcox, Anna Halm Schudel, Alice Zilberberg.
