The Galerie für Moderne Fotografie was founded in 2008 by Kirsten Landwehr and is located on Schröderstraße in Berlin’s Mitte district.
The gallery program focuses specifically on the medium of photography and concentrates on presenting internationally established artists as well as discovering young photographic talents.
Featuring exhibitions such as the GDR fashion photography of photographer Roger Melis from the 1960s and 70s, the program encompasses not only fashion photography from the past forty years and rare vintage photos, but also presents current works by established contemporary artists such as Camille Vivier, Ingar Krauss, or Albrecht Fuchs. The gallery is also always on the look out for exciting new positions and shows newcomers such as Karoline Klüppel, a former student of Bernard Prinz, and other singular artist personalities working in portraiture and landscape photography.
In focusing on fashion photography as well as conceptual positions in current (staged) photography, the gallery and its program seek to convey the diversity of approaches in contemporary photography today.
The shows at the gallery’s exhibitions spaces are augmented by regularly programmed presentations of work at the GFMF Salon in various locations around Berlin and abroad.
