Founded in 2001, Lumiere Brothers Gallery is one of the oldest photography galleries in Moscow. The gallery represents works by the celebrated Soviet constructivists (Boris Ignatovich, Yakov Khalip, and Mikhail Prekhner) and reporters from the 1930s (Mark Markov-Grinberg, Emmanuil Evzerikhin, Arkadij Shaikhet, Naum Granovsky and Alexander Ustinov). The gallery has been at the forefront of reintroducing and promoting the work of first class Soviet photographers from the 1960s–1970s (Vladimir Lagrange, Yuri Abramochkin, Vasily Egorov and Vladimir Bogdanov) and forefathers of the
Lithuanian school (Antanas Sutkus, Alek- sandras Macijauskas, Romualdas Pozerskis). The gallery’s pool of artists encompasses a variety of styles, which flourished in Russian photography during the last three decades, featuring, amongst others, Sergey Borisov, Va- dim Gushchin, Vladimir Antoshchenkov and Igor Palmin. With over 15 years of experience in the international art market, the gallery has created close working relationships with many of the foremost photographers and archives. Its pool of artists of international standing includes Ruth Orkin, Steve Schapiro, Sabine Weiss, Harold Feinstein, Wynn Bullock, Arno Rafael Minkkinen, Greg Gorman, and Sasha Gusov. The gallery also presents the work of young contemporary photographers such as Laurent Chehere, Sandro Miller, Kacper Kowalski, and Shigeru Yoshida. Starting from 2005 the gallery provides consulting services to corporate and private clients for acquisitions of Russian, American, European and Chinese photography of the 20th century.
