ElliottHalls is a leading authority in the European fine art photography scene. We hold a diverse collection of work from both key historical and established photographic artists, spanning the early 20th century to contemporary. Our photographers have all exhibited internationally and have their work featured in museums, corporate and private collections around the globe.
Alongside our exciting exhibition programme, we also offer a by appointment ‘print room’ where clients, photography experts and enthusiasts can browse our collection.
Our clients and collectors reflect the diversity and breadth of the fantastic work we exhibit. Our roster includes public and private museums, corporate collections, experienced collectors and those looking to start and grow their photography collections.
