For the second year we have been so impressed by the physical layout, location and, of course, exhibits, presented by Lumiere in Atlanta. After the New York cool exhibit space in Chelsea and the modernity of LA/San Francisco gallery layouts, it is a pleasure to be at “home” in Lumiere.
Lumière provides a diverse range of photographic art through its’ own proprietary collection, regular exhibitions and acquisition activities on behalf of clients.
The gallery has work from over 75 photographers. They range from masters of the 19th and 20th century to more contemporary practitioners. All are established, with works in important museum collections, as well as having participated in multiple exhibitions. Most have had multiple books and catalogues published on their work.
Lumière was founded by Robert Yellowlees. It reflects his experiences as a collector of art for over 35 years in addition to having served on the boards of major arts institutions.
Tony Casadonte has had a diverse 30 year career in photography. Prior to joining Lumière as gallery director, he managed the leading commercial photography laboratory in the Southeast. In that capacity, he was actively involved with professional photographers to support their processing and printing requirements.
Laura Noel, following graduation from Duke University and an internship at Aperture Foundation, has pursued a professional photographic career for almost 20 years.
