"I created fotofever 6 years ago driven by three motivations: a passion for photography fed by my family’s history for multiple generations, a respect for galleries that promote young artists in the art market, and the belief that collecting is an act of support for the artistic creation found in all of us. "  

Cécile Schall
, founder & director



fotofever is the first platform dedicated to the discovery of emerging contemporary photography for both established and aspiring collectors.

fotofever recognises collecting a major support system for young artistic creation and photography as the ideal medium to start one’s collection. Its START TO COLLECT program accompanies, throughout the year, established and aspiring collectors in the discovery of new artists, techniques and artistic horizons.
