Always passionate about photography, I financed my studies by photographing concerts in the north of France at the end of the 70s. I developed and printed the images at night to sell the prints the next day. Arrived in Paris at the beginning of the 80s, I meet Willy Ronis in the Ménilmontant district where I lived. This meeting, followed by many others afterwards, was a revelation on the treasures of humanist photography. My quest for prints began at a time when galleries and salons hardly existed. As this collection became intrusive, I had the idea of creating the argentic.fr site to transform this passion into a profession and widen the circle of fans of this great and beautiful school of emotions and rigor.
The ARGENTIC gallery, located in the Mouffetard district in Paris, presented around thirty exhibitions and participated in multiple fairs and exhibitions. It stopped in the summer of 2021, allowing me to share my time between my two passions: photography and Brittany where I live part of the year.
My credo: ARGENTIC, a site created by collectors, for collectors.
The argentic.fr site was created in 2005. We specialize in French humanist photography and offer vintage or modern silver prints. We keep operating costs as low as possible (galleries, exhibitions, advertising, etc.) in order to offer you our collection photographs at the fairest price.
We also act as consultants for many auction houses. This site represents only part of our reserves, do not hesitate to contact us for any request on a particular photographer.
