“History of art is a history of great things neglected and ignored and mediocre things being admired. At different times things are different. The history of photography is a history of changes.” –Saul Leiter (more…)
Founded in 1995, Yancey Richardson is one of the preeminent galleries of photo-based art. The gallery is committed to working with museums, private institutions, leading art collectors and other galleries to advance the careers of the artists we represent. Our current program includes critically recognized, emerging photographers such as Bryan Graf, Zanele Muholi and Paul Mpagi Sepuya as well as mid-career artists such as Mitch Epstein, Laura Letinsky, Andrew Moore, Mickalene Thomas and Hellen van Meene. Additionally, the gallery regularly exhibits the work of established masters, including August Sander, Ed Ruscha, and William Eggleston.
Gallery artists have been extensively collected and exhibited by museums worldwide including the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Getty Museum, Centre George Pompidou, Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art, New York, National Gallery of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Stedelijk Museum, Tate Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Gallery artists have been widely published in artist monographs, prominent art journals, and critical texts. Reviews of the gallery’s exhibitions have appeared in Artnews, Art in America, Artforum, Modern Painters, The Nation, New York Times and the New Yorker among many other publications.
