Gustave le Gray and his circle    Oct 11 - Oct 14, 2012

A special highlight at Frieze Masters 2012 by James Hyman, F11

James Hyman will present a special exhibition that coincides with the Petit Palais, Paris' coincidental show on the subject.

Gustave le Gray was one of the most technically accomplished of all early photographers, even writing treatises on how best to perfect the earliest chemical processes. But as this exhibition demonstrates, and Le Gray himself emphasised, photography was not just about scientific advance but also the creation of a new aesthetic:

"It is my deepest wish that photography, instead of falling within the domain of industry, of commerce, will be included among the arts. That is its sole, true place, and it is in that direction that I shall always endeavour to guide it. It is up to the men devoted to its advancement to set this idea firmly in their minds."
