Catherine and André Hug Gallery was founded in Paris in 2000. Located in the heart of Saint Germain des Prés, Paris’ artistic and historic district, the Gallery is primarily dedicated to contemporary art, representing artists of various expressions – from painting to installation, drawing and sculpture – the gallery has gradually dedicated itself to photography and for the last five years exclusively to photographic works.
The Catherine and André Hug Gallery chose photography to explore the mode of expression of this medium, particularly through classic documentary style photographers or fictional form enabled by the medium. Additionally, the gallery especially chose photography for its questioning of reality, its narrative potential or exploration of the dream that inhabits man.
For the past five years, the gallery presented, among others, the documentary work of the famous American photographer Susan Meiselas (Prince Street Girls, 1976), the far north exploration of British photographer Stuart Franklin (Narcissus, 2010), classical and meditative landscapes of Italian George Tatge, fictions by Canadian Kourtney Roy, and the minimalist and poetic representations of Japanese Ryo Suzuki.
The gallery is developing its photographic programme by comparing historical series to most contemporary expressions. Discoveries and rediscoveries allow to question time and reality, two foundations of photography.
