Since 2004, SAGE Paris is proud to have followed in the steps of Ann and Jürgen Wilde, of Cologne’s Galerie Wilde, which, in the 1960s, was the first European gallery to show forgotten Masters of German photography, such as Karl Blossfeldt, Albert Renger- Patzsch and August Sander. Galerie Wilde was also instrumental in the rediscovery of Germaine Krull, Florence Henri and Piet Zwart, as well as in discovering Duane Michals and Les Krims.
Our particular interest in Masterworks of photography of the nineteenth - and twentieth - century has led us, from the beginning of the gallery, to present museum quality exhibitions with seminal works such as vintage prints of Karl Blossfeldt or André Kertész and more recently Andy Warhol.
SAGE Paris has also a keen interest in contemporary photography. We have developed close working relationships with Daido Moriyama, Miyako Ishiuchi, Tomoko Yoneda, Zhuang Hui and Joao Penalva, all of whose work is represented in major museum collections.
