Galerie Julian Sander represents both emerging and established photographers from around the world, including August Sander, a pre-eminent 20th-century German portrait and documentary photographer. The gallery, which was established by Sander’s great-grandson, represents the artist’s estate in conjunction with Hauser & Wirth.
Leading contemporary photographers on the gallery roster include Alfredo Srur, who is a Buenos Aires-born photographer known for his candid images of people and places outside the mainstream; New York-based Sean Hemmerle, who has travelled around the globe to capture life and beauty in international conflict zones and architecture from the Middle East to North America; and Jory Hull, who also works as a director, producer, and graphic designer, and makes photographs that push at perceptions of the commonplace and everyday.
Each year, Galerie Julian Sander hosts four to five exhibitions at its location in Cologne. The year 2014 was dedicated to a series of eight exhibitions solely focusing on August Sander’s work, including 60 photographs from his first book, Antlitz der Zeit (Face of Our Time, published in 1929), and portraits of women, farmers, students, actors, artists, soldiers, and aristocrats in Germany in the early 20thcentury. In 2019, the gallery organised a retrospective exhibition of Alfredo Srur, broadening the range of Argentinian photography that has been exhibited in Germany.
Galerie Julian Sander participates in numerous international art fairs, among them Art Cologne, Internationale Photoszene Köln Festival, and Paris Photo.
