Valérie-Anne GISCARD D'ESTAING - Director of Photo Gallery 12

French / English

After a long career in publishing, Valérie-Anne Giscard d'Estaing founded the Agence Photo12 in 2000 and then the Gallery of the same name in 2007. Originally oriented towards photojournalism, the Gallery's editorial line has evolved to specialize today in contemporary figurative photography. Among the artists represented are the Frenchmen Clark & Pougnaud, the French Anne Pharel and the Norwegian Anja Niemi. Valérie-Anne has taken on the challenge of introducing European photographers to Asia (opening a space in Shanghai in 2017) and the American West Coast with the opening of a gallery a few meters from the LACMA in Los Angeles in December 2018.
