Established in 1979, The Robert Koch Gallery exhibits and offers a wide range of exemplary photography that spans the history of the medium from the 19th century to the present. Our extensive inventory emphasizes contemporary photography, Modernist and experimental work from the 1920s and 1930s, and 19th century photography. From inception, our mission has been to help define and participate in the evolving understanding of the history of photography.
The Robert Koch Gallery actively seeks and exhibits significant new artists and lesser-researched frontiers in the history of the medium, while offering the finest examples by established masters of photography. Our contemporary program is shaped by a desire to build the dialogue around significant social, environmental, and aesthetic issues of our time, an aim that is shared by many of the gallery’s artists. We participate in several art fairs internationally, and have published monographs cataloging the works of our artists and holdings.
