A passion for photography

The concept: 1,000 pieces at £50 instead of 10 pieces at £5,000

YellowKorner aims to democratise art photography and render it accessible to all. Bringing together the public and the artists, YellowKorner galleries present and commercialise the photography of over 200 artists, in a limited print run, each numbered and complete with a certificate of authenticity.

YellowKorner promotes the talents of the past, present, and future through a network of over 100 galleries worldwide. The concept is simple: to increase the number of copies of a piece to render it accessible to the greatest number of people, enthusiasts and collectors alike. YellowKorner is now the leading publisher of accessible photography through its international network of over 100 galleries (stores) in 25 countries.

It’s time for the UK to welcome YellowKorner to our High Streets!

The prints

High quality professional prints

All YellowKorner pieces are silver gelatin prints produced by a professional laboratory. Under the artist’s supervision, the prints are numbered and a certificate of authenticity is provided. In accord with the photographer, the same print may be available in one or more formats (24×36 cm, 60×90 cm, 100×150 cm, 120×180 cm, and 150×225cm).

Each format has its own limited print run (each is limited edition and numbered at 50, 100, 200, 500, or 5,000 copies.)

The galleries

100 exhibition spaces in the world and an online gallery

Determined to bring the public closer to the artists, YellowKorner has created unique spaces for display. In conjunction with the renown architect and designer Gérard Barrau, Alexandre de Metz and Paul-Antoine Briat conceive and design their exhibition venues. Thus, the concept of entirely black & white galleries is born. These spaces magnify the works on display and welcome all art lovers with luxury and sobriety.

YellowKorner has over 100 galleries around the world. YellowKorner galleries offer a wide panorama of both traditional and contemporary photography. Each gallery meets the first requirement of the founders of YellowKorner: to make these exhibition spaces places of culture and connection between the public and artists of choice. To this end, galleries organize events, openings where photographers and celebrities move in a common spirit of sharing. At your disposal are the gallerists, all passionate and experienced, accompanying you on your journey, and guiding your discovery.
