Best Photography Galleries in the World (#6)

Camera Work Berlin

CAMERA WORK was founded in 1997 in Berlin, and has since become one of the world’s leading galleries for photography. With its historically-coined gallery name, the company has always followed a philosophy of representing, alongside world-famous classic photographers such as Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Helmut Newton, Irving Penn, Man Ray and Herb Ritts, young and contemporary artists to manifest the position of photography as an independent genre within visual art, and to give room to new positions. To give contemporary photography an even bigger significance, CAMERA WORK opened the CWC GALLERY in Berlin at the beginning of 2012, focusing on contemporary photography exhibitions. The two galleries, in collaboration with museums, galleries and other art institutions, enable the presentation of exhibitions worldwide. In 2001, CAMERA WORK AG was founded, which owns one of the world’s most extensive and high-quality private photography collections featuring numerous vintage works of the most famous photographers, from the 19th century to the present.
