The passion for photography started in New York in 1996 with the purchase of five original prints from the 1920s. Founders of LUMAS, Stefanie Harig and Marc Ullrich, opened a Brick-and-mortar gallery in 2003 in the hopes of spreading their enthusiasm and enabling people to experience and acquire the phenomenal art of photography. Today LUMAS has expanded into over 40 venues world-wide and the Stockholm gallery is by no means straying from the original vision. They strive to make high-quality photographic art affordable and approachableĀ to anybody who fancies to broaden their artistic horizons, no matter what background or previous cultural cultivation.
