From a Private Collection


HackelBury Fine Art, London is pleased to present the exhibition “From a Private Collection” a group of photographs acquired by one collector over a decade, celebrating the work of some of the most important photographers of the 20th century. The exhibition will be at HackelBury, London from 28th April until 4th June 2022.

The collection was acquired over a decade from 2000 and reveals the individual taste and sensibility of one collector – reflecting their personal interest in history and visual storytelling.  The works were acquired over time and illustrate the invaluable relationship between collector and gallery, fundamentally based on trust and taste.  It maps the journey of a visitor to HackelBury in 2000, using a work bonus to purchase their first photograph El Malpais, May, 1997 by David Michael Kennedy. This purchase, together with the encouragement and guidance of the gallery owners Sascha Hackel and Marcus Bury, became the genesis for the beginning of a collection.
