YellowKorner was created in 2006 by two friends, Alexandre de Metz and Paul-Antoine Briat, both passionate about photography since childhood. From this encounter came an idea and an ambition: to make art photography accessible for all and YellowKorner the leading publisher of art photography. Today there are more than 90 YellowKorner galleries worldwide.
YellowKorner wishes to provide an outlet for expression for talents from various movements in photography. The only requirement is a truly artistic approach. Contemporary artists thus rub shoulders with the great names in photography (Eugène Atget, Man Ray, Jean Dieuzaide, Slim Aarons, Matthieu Ricard, or Yann Arthus-Bertrand), or period photographers (Kusakabe Kimbei, Nadar, or Léon Gimpel). So YellowKorner is a place where the great talents of yesterday, today, and tomorrow meet.
Each of the galleries satisfies a requirement: to be a place of culture and conviviality, for exchanges between the public and the artists through events, exhibition openings, and classes, so that the public can discover the art of photography. It is precisely this spirit of cooperation that drives YellowKorner’s teams.
