Devoted is a fine art photography gallery. We differ conceptually from most classical photo galleries; our inventory of anonymous negative is specialized in 20th-century Italian pop photography. Our aim is to dignify the vernacular language of photography.
The language of renowned photographers and photography is dignified and celebrated; this curated selection of anonymous images wants to reevaluate the meaning of vernacular photographic culture, the dialect of photography, putting the focus on the unconscious artistic meaning of these still not celebrated shots. Devoted searches and selects through an unlimited heritage of forgotten pictures that might get lost. Our extensive research enables us to offer refined quality photographs, with a strong sense of composition and certain compelling strengths.
What is presented here is just a small sample of the collection that is available; not all photographs in our inventory are on line.
