A Gallery For Fine Photography
A Gallery For Fine Photography
New Orleans - 241 Chartres Street - LA 70130
Founded at a time when photography was only beginning to secure a foothold both in museum collections and in the art market at large, A Gallery for Fine Photography is a living landmark in the history of photography. Located in the Historic New Orleans French Quarter, A Gallery opened its doors in 1973, a world away from the cornerstones of the global contemporary art scene. Thanks to the staunchly independent vision of its founder, Joshua Mann Pailet, A Gallery has remained a haven for photography, from the earliest photographs to contemporary pieces. Over more than four decades in business, A Gallery for Fine Photography has established itself as one of the most respected photography galleries in America – one that has flourished despite an ever-changing art world by remaining true to itself and Pailet’s unique perspective.

A Gallery for Fine Photography quickly made a name for itself with its first solo exhibition: a 1975 retrospective featuring the work of Ansel Adams, one of the godfathers of American photography. Today, more than forty years later, the gallery has come to resemble a museum for sale – both in the breadth and quality of its collection and in its mission to preserve and honor the history of the photographic medium. An alternative to the sterile, white-walled galleries of the contemporary art world, A Gallery, much like the French Quarter itself, effortlessly blends the historic and the vanguard. The gallery hopes to inspire the passions and curiosities of each person who walks through the door, from curious tourists to seasoned collectors and world-renowned curators. A Gallery continues to maintain an inventory featuring some of the most celebrated photographers of the last two centuries while mounting regular exhibitions of contemporary photographers from New Orleans and throughout the world.
