Photography

From early daguerreotypes to contemporary digital prints

France is proving to be a key global meeting place for experts, enthusiasts and collectors of photographs from around the world, as confirmed by the success of numerous events dedicated to photography such as Paris Photo and Les Rencontres d’Arles.

It is with this in mind that Artcurial, France’s leading auction house, will continue the development of auctions dedicated to 20th century specialities through a Photography Department.
