From Zurich, Switzerland, we present the participation of Christophe Guye Galerie at Unseen. Founded in 2006 in Los Angeles by the name of Scalo|Guye, Christophe Guye Galerie established itself in Zurich in 2010. Focused on contemporary art, the gallery fosters national as well as international artists who consider the medium of photography within the larger context of contemporary art as whole. The gallery represents renowned artists such as Michael Wolf (1954), Bill Henson (1955) and Peter Beard (1938), as well as younger talents including Stephen Gill (1971), Ina Jang (1982) and Esther Mathis (1985).

The gallery's artists notably contribute to the art historical discourse and the development within the photographic practice and contemporary art at large. Currently on display at the gallery is the exhibition Icons of Tomorrow until 2 June. The exhibition presents leading and internationally acknowledged artists that have been of great influence and have shaped the genre of contemporary fashion photography in recent years. These artists explore the boundaries between art and commerce and include Nick Knight (1958), Guy Bourdin (1928-1991, France), Terry Richardson (1964) and Miles Aldridge (1964). 

At Unseen, the Christophe Guye Galerie will present the work of the young artists Ina Jang (1982), Will Steacy (1980) and Esther Mathis (1985), as well as latest work by the famed Japanese artist Noritoshi Hirakawa (1960). All very distinct and unique in style and approach, each of these artists perfectly reflect the gallery's approach to supporting photographic art structured upon an conceptual basis. 

The Christophe Guye Galerie can be found on Dufourstrasse 31, in the Seefeld district in Zurich. The gallery is open from Monday to Friday from 10-6pm and Saturday from 11-4pm.
