°CLAIR Gallery specialises in fine art photography and hosts exhibitions worldwide.
Our gallery was founded in 2008 Munich, Germany by Anna-Patricia Kahn and Markus Penth. It is dedicated to representing and supporting classical and contemporary photographers and their estates. °CLAIR opened a second gallery in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, Côte d’Azur, in 2011 to respond to growing demand.
The °CLAIR Gallery represents some of the most important photographers of the 20th and 21st century including Phillipe Halsman, Jacques Henri Lartigue, Alvin Langdon Coburn, and Lee Miller. It also represents elite contemporary photographers such as Oliver Mark and Petr Lovgin, while also working closely with photographers from the prestigious Magnum Agency.
Founding Director and Owner Anna-Patricia Kahn offers a personal, worldwide curation service to our collectors, and selects and procures individual prints or portfolios on request. She is particularly specialised in selecting images for thematic or chronological collections according to the needs and wishes of the collector. She is committed to protecting the rights of photographers and their estates. As authentication is one of the most important challenges that faces photography today, °CLAIR Gallery makes great efforts to ensure the provenance of each print is either the artists’ studio, or their estate.
°CLAIR Gallery edits and releases one book per year on a featured photographer, and has curated exhibitions at the Russian Cultural Center in Rome, America House in Munich, and is present in art fairs worldwide.
