First to introduce classic photographs from the early 20th century in the Brazilian market, Utópica has established itself as one of the premier venues in the country dealing in modern and contemporary photography and works to ensure the physical integrity, authenticity and proof of origin of the vintage prints it deals.
Headquartered in São Paulo, Utópica represents the works of seventeen photographers. They are: Aracy Esteves Gomes, Evandro Teixeira, Felipe Russo, Fernando Lemos, German Lorca, Carlos Moreira, Juca Martins, Luiz Carlos Barreto, Monica Piloni, Rogério Assis, Rogério Reis, Valdir Zwetsch and Wagner Almeida; and in Brazil, Beth Moon, Guillermo Srodek-Hart and the estates of photographers Annemarie Heinrich and Martín Chambi. In addition to these names, the gallery has in its collection works by over more than 30 photographers, such as Heinz Hajek-Halke, Carlos Bippus, Jean Manzon and the Hermanos Vargas.
Conceived in 2007 as a movement to bring awareness to the cultural and historical relevance of photography as a significant art form, since 2008 the gallery has participated in all major fairs of art and photography in São Paulo, obtaining recognition on the Brazilian market for its museum-quality shows.
Formed by a small and knowledgeable team of people active in the field of photography for over two decades, Utópica acts to advise both beginning and experienced collectors on forming relevant photography collections, without forgetting the interests of photographers, researchers and the general public. With the gallery’s website we hope to provide all the information the visitor should need to have access both to the work of a photographer and to the main questions around photography as a medium and art form.
