ºCLAIRbyKahn is a dedicated photography gallery that represents a selection of history’s most important photographers and some of the most compelling contemporary artists in the field.

Director Anna-Patricia Kahn has earned a reputation for excellence as a result of her work curating exhibitions and editing books of photography. She collaborates closely with international collectors, artists, archives, and museums to safeguard the legacy of prestigious photographers and to enhance the value of photographic artworks.

Ms. Kahn has spent more than two decades working with images. During her time as a war reporter in the 1990s and a Middle East correspondent in the 2000s she collaborated with iconic photographers such as Erich Hartmann and witnessed the incredible power and emotion conveyed through photography. Observing that great photographers were often dismissed as documentarians, Ms. Kahn was motivated to found ºCLAIRbyKahn in 2008 to advocate for photography as an art form and to foster emerging artistic talent. Since that time, she has curated more than two dozen exhibitions on three continents and served as an editor for the publication of more than a dozen photography folios.

ºCLAIRbyKahn now represents some of the most notable photographers of the 20th and 21st centuries, including Philippe Halsman, Jacques Henri Lartigue, David 'CHIM' Seymour, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Erich Hartmann, Inge Morath and Lee Miller. Ms. Kahn also works closely with prominent contemporary photographers such as Chien-Chi Chang, Pascal Bastien, and Seán Hillen.
