Obscura Gallery was established in 2016 to represent the finest contributions to the history of photography through both contemporary and vintage works. Each represented artist, ranging from 19th-21st century photographers, offers a unique approach to the medium with special attention emphasized on the fine print. Obscura Gallery celebrates the ways in which contemporary artists are using progressive processes to build upon the medium which began nearly 200 years ago.

Founder and Owner Jennifer Schlesinger previously served as Director of Santa Fe’s Verve Gallery of Photography for eleven years. A passionate photography dealer, scholar, and artist in the medium herself, Jennifer and Obscura Gallery can also offer guidance on collection management, database inventory, consulting and advising, as well as estate representation, appraisals, research, de-accession and consignments.

Located in the Santa Fe downtown historic district two blocks east of the revitalized Railyard district, Obscura Gallery resides in an historic building that was renovated in 2017. The space is shared with Brant Mackley Gallery which specializes in exceptional antique North America Indian, Oceanic, Asian, and African art – together, the two offer a unique, deeply-layered, and intertwined gallery experience.
