Philippe Halsmann was born in what is now Riga, Latvia in 1906. Halsman once said “I considered the human face the most interesting subject to photograph, I hoped I could explore it the way my favourite writers, Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky, had explored human nature, with psychological depth and honesty”.
We started out as a small screenprinter in a Brighton basement. Today we've grown to a factory and design studio in Newhaven. Headed by founder Gyr King, we have a simple ethos to bring inspiring, affordable art to everyone.
