LONDON.- James Hyman presents a loan exhibition of one of the greatest photographers of the nineteenth century, Edouard Baldus. Remarkably, this is the first major exhibition of Edouard Baldus ever to be staged in London.

Acclaimed as the greatest architectural photographer of the nineteenth century, Baldus's prints were some of the largest photographs in existence and pioneered an aesthetic of presenting modernity and the modern city that would have a profound influence on later photographers from the Bechers to John Davies.

Baldus was famed for his monumental photographs of the buildings of Paris at a time of massive transition under Napoleon III, Baron Haussman and Viollet-Le-Duc, as well as the depiction of the contemporary landscape of France.

The exhibition includes examples of acclaimed works that were exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Arts magnificent Baldus exhibition of 1996, as well as major rediscoveries made since that exhibition was staged.

This presentation will take place in conjunction with the gallery’s presence at FRIEZE MASTERS London and is the opening presentation for the gallery’s new location at 16 Savile Row.

The exhibition includes loans from private collections as well as a selection of works for sale.
