FOREWORD FROM THE FOUNDERS OF LUMAS




                                                         New York, East Village, 1996. We met John at an antique mar-
                                                         ket. He dealt in old photographs. At first, he seemed grouchy
                                                         and taciturn. Then, suddenly invigorated, he showed us his
                                                         treasures: press photos from the 1920s. We were thrilled –
                                                         with John and the pictures. Full of the pride of discovery, we
                                                         bought five original photo prints. Back then, a door opened to
                                                         a whole new world: the world of art photography. It is black-
                                                         and-white and colorful, analog and digital, vibrant and inspir-
                                                         ing. In this world, we discovered the unknown  and learned
                                                         how to rediscover what we already knew.


                                                         The LUMAS story started exactly 15 years ago with our first
                                                         gallery in Berlin-Mitte. These days, we share our passion with
                                                         photography enthusiasts in 29 galleries worldwide, and, with
                                                         more than 3,000 artworks, the LUMAS portfolio is among the
