Kahmann Gallery was founded in 2005 by collector and entrepreneur Roy Kahmann. While the original concept was to focus purely on Dutch vintage photography, the scope has broadened over time to include international photographers and younger talents. Kahmann Gallery acts as a specialist in the presentation and sale of exclusive fine art photography that has either made history or will most likely do so.
The gallery exhibition program is a mix of vintage and contemporary photography. Besides a large vintage print collection (1930 – 1980), Kahmann Gallery represents the work of almost 30 national and internationally renowned photographers. The gallery is also a supporter of new photography talent and has created Kahmann Gallery LAB to coach these artists on their first steps into the commercial art world.
The gallery initiates about six exhibitions a year in the Amsterdam gallery cooperates with various international galleries and museums and participates in international art fairs. Kahmann Gallery acts as an art dealer and advisor for the acquisition of photography for a company or corporate collections.
