Although all the major Parisian art events have been hastily cancelled (the Fiac, Paris photo and even Art & Museum) other fairs such as Galeristes and Asia Now have confirmed they will be taking place, highlighting the rarity of such events in this very difficult period.

Surrealist photography was officially born in 1924 with the movement Manifesto by André Breton. The thirst for new experiences which inspired the surrealist oeuvre sustained the exploration of the photographic medium in various forms. Man Ray’s solarization involving exposing the negative to light, Raoul Ubac’s brûlages, Pierre Molinier’s photomontages or André Kertész’s mirror effects are all examples of techniques which de-realise subjects and objects, giving them an element of mystery…Surrealist beauty is irrational and coincidental, marvellous and convulsive.

« Begierde im Blick » (the Gaze of Desire) is the main theme of the major exhibition on surrealist photography held at the Kunsthalle, Hamburg running until 29 May 2005.An element of the surrealism movement since its beginnings in 1924, photography allowed to capture images and sensations taken from « real » life. For MAN RAY, Jacques-André BOIFFARD, Hans BELLMER, Manuel ÁLVAREZ BRAVO, Raoul UBAC, André KERTÉSZ, Herbert BAYER and Claude CAHUN, photography provided a way to present a surrealist vision of the world: an impossible reality.

While few segments of the art market have escaped the current depression some are being especially hard hit. This is particularly true of photography. After riding the speculative wave of 1997-2001, prices have crashed since the start of the year. The crisis is all the more striking as it comes straight after a boom in the sector.

Finding a niche in a declining market.

Collectors are being bombarded with offers aimed at reviving the current sluggish market. But the figures tell a different story. The buy-in ratio over the last six months has averaged 37% and auction houses are increasingly struggling to fill their catalogues. By 23 September, only 185 fine art sales had been announced for October 2003 compared to 263 a year earlier.
