So as my first installment of the Staff Favorites post category I though I would write a few words about the Feroz Paper. My original idea when conceiving this paper was to create a solid chunk of information for the collectors and museums people who came by my stand at Paris Photo 2014. I asked a number of people to write for it, and had the fantastic Jory Hull do the graphics for me. What came of it was a whole different way to pass on information. As the gallery name is changing I discussed with my assistant director Marina if she would be interested in keeping the paper going. ANd I am happy to say she said yes! So in the coming Paris Photo we will be offering the second run of the Feroz Paper under the same name. Look out for it.
I am delighted to say that there will be a wonderful vintage print by August Sander coming up at Sothebys this spring. It is an image of Heinrich Hoerle whoc was a close friend and artistic colleague of August Sander in the 1920-30’s. I am particularly happy to see that the estimate is much closer to what I believe is the proper place for August Sanders vintage exhibition prints. The little known fact is that there really are not all that many of these prints done by August out there. And of those that there are even fewer are available on market. This will be an exciting sale for sure.
Please come and visit FEROZ at Paris Photo stand C2 FEROZ Galerie presents an extraordinary program at Paris Photo, with rare vintage photographs by August Sander, as well as a choice selection of works from our inventory. We also include in our exhibition the work of master contemporary artists Sean Hemmerle, Jory Hull, Michael Somoroff and we are very pleased to introduce the photographic work of Clark & Joan Worswick and the Estate of Ben Somoroff.

We are also pleased to announce August Sander Zyklus, our forthcoming series of exhibitions, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the artist’s death. We begin this series with Antlitz der Zeit (Faces of Our Time), regarded by Sander as a preview of Menschen des 20. Jahrhundert (People of the 20th Century), and continue with each of the seven groups as defined by the artist, offering visitors the chance to experience the artist’s work in-depth. These eight exhibitions will be on display in the FEROZ Galerie in Bonn from 24 January 2014 until 24 December 2014. Jory Hull: My Mind is Racing A […]

(C)2013 Gerd Sander Today the Wall Street Journal released an article they have been writing about the Portfolio “Ten Southern Photographs” by William Christenberry. This Portfolio was part of the exhibition “Southern Dialogue” in the Feroz Galerie. It is a wonderful article, which I suggest you read if you are interested in William Christenberry, and also if you would like to know a little about how I grew up in the art business. —JS The article is here: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324591204579036782763486094.html

Where are you from? New York City. Where were you born and educated? I was born in New Hampshire, USA. I have lived all over America and studied design at a few art schools in the USA, but I am a college dropout. Why did you dropout colleges? You didn’t like the process of education at all? It was a different time than now- I had a good portfolio and a job lined up at the time. I was very self motivated and I learned as much on my own as I did in school. With Art school, it is of course more about the work you have done and not the grades you get that will get you places. How have you become photographer? Are you a designer too? I am a painter mostly, and I approach photography more like painting, I suppose. I like to look at it more like abstract, subjective art. My day job is working in design. I direct commercials and films too. Why do love living in New York? Why not other cities, cause you said that you lived all over America. I live in NYC at the moment but I may not for very much […]
