Lumas Photography

IMG_0021

Walking around London is always a new experience even for residents. This time I was wondering around Mayfair when I was attracted by the window of what I thought was a gallery. But I was happily surprised by this shop/gallery where you can buy photography at reasonable prices.

LUMAS was founded by Stefanie Harig and Marc Ullrich in New York, East Village, 1996.

“We created LUMAS with the hope of making the art market more accessible and stirring our passion for photography in a new generation of collectors.”

LUMAS offers the opportunity to experience an all-encompassing variety of photographs, from up-and-coming to established photography artists.

The advantage is that you can also purchase very exciting pieces online from anywhere in the world. The following are some of my favourites:

Matthew Cusick:

This American artist makes impressive collages of mountains or oceans using cuts from heavy atlases and other map books, working with box cutters and scissors.

Mylan’s Wave by Matthew Cusick, 30×40 cm, £ 98.00

Sven Fennema:

There is something quite moving about Fennema’s work. His shots of empty, beautiful and sometimes almost derelict buildings are quite something.

He explains his series “Habitat” with a quotation from Jean Paul: “Our memories are the only paradise from which we can never be expelled.”
