About us

THE GALLERY PRINCETON

The Gallery Princeton is a space dedicated to promote History of Photography as Fine Art. The Gallery plans to exhibit works of world-renowned photographers, who have documented historic moments in the realm of space and time. There is little doubt nowadays that photography, aside from its enormous variety of applications, is legitimately considered a fine art discipline. Almost any well-known and reputed museum has sections dedicated solely to photographic art; and there are a number of museums and galleries dedicated specifically to photography.

Photography finally stood its ground and has found its place in the art world.

Studio Shraza is managed by Hasan R Sayed, who is highly experienced in the field of art and Photography. The space will also have workshops on photography as form of art. The studio shall associate itself with some of the leading Museums, Photographic Foundations and reputed syndication agencies to bring out prestigious Archives in public domain. Kulwant Roy Archive is one such collection, which shall mark the inauguration of our humble endeavor. Over the period of time we also plan to promote new talent in the field of photography by supporting and curating the shows.
