Catherine and André Hug Gallery was founded in Paris in 2000. Located in the heart of the artistic and historic Saint Germain des Prés neighborhood, the Catherine and André Hug Gallery has chosen photography to explore its mode of expression with classic documentary style photographers or through a fictional form allowing the medium its narrative potential, its exploration of the dream that inhabits man and especially how it questions reality. Over the past years with numerous exhibitions, the gallery has presented the documentary work of the famous American photographer Susan Meiselas (Prince Street Girls, 1976 , Crossings Over the US-Mexican Border ” 1989),Raymond Depardon’s first time in Manhattan in the 80′,the progressive “Datazone” project from Philippe Chancel , Canadian Kourtney Roy’s fictions, Joni Sternbach’s unique blending of subject matter and photographic technique and the latest Californian photographs by Mona Kuhn.
The gallery continues to develop its photographic program, comparing more historical series to the most contemporary expressions. Discoveries and rediscoveries allow the questioning of time and reality which are two of photography’s very foundations .
