FotoNostrum is on a mission to increase society’s comprehension and admiration of photography, recognizing its ever-evolving significance in contemporary culture. Our goal is to champion emerging artists by cultivating audiences, fostering dialogues within the photographic community, and  encouraging discussions between photographers and the public. We aim to ignite curiosity about photography through various mediums, including publications and exhibitions, both within our vibrant space in Barcelona and at external venues like prestigious art fairs.

Jennifer Schlesinger; Obscura Gallery

Jennifer Schlesinger is founder and director of Obscura Gallery in Sante Fe, New Mexico. Obscura specializes in photography, with an emphasis on contemporary artists alongside an inventory of 19th to 20th century 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.
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. Jennifer is Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) compliant through January 31, 2026.
In 2024, Obscura Gallery moved to the bustling Canyon Road arts district of Santa Fe at the intersection of Canyon Road and Delgado Street.

Sidney S. Monroe & Michelle A. Monroe; Monroe Gallery of Photography

Celebrating 22 years in Santa Fe in 2024, Monroe Gallery of Photography specializes in 20th– and 21st-century photojournalism and humanist imagery—images that are embedded in our collective consciousness and which form a shared visual heritage for human society. Many of these photographs not only moved the public at the time of their publication but maintain the power to stir the consciousness (and conscience) today. They set social and political changes in motion, transforming the way we live and think—in a shared medium that is a singular intersectionality of art and journalism.
Monroe Gallery of Photography is owned and staffed exclusively by Sidney S. Monroe and Michelle A. Monroe. Sidney and Michelle maintain extensive personal connections with important photographers, clients, collectors, dealers, estates, auction houses, and archives worldwide. They have consulted with photographers, estates, and archives to curate and organize programs and exhibitions, and advise private collectors, museums, and corporations, with an emphasis on building collections with a variety of prudent focuses. Sidney and Michelle are also regularly invited to speak to photography workshops and seminars, as well as to college and high school student groups. Together, they have more than 50 years of curatorial and academic experience, and are acknowledged experts on the life and work of a number of famed photographers, including LIFE Magazine photojournalists Margaret Bourke-White, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Bill Eppridge, Bob Gomel, and Carl Mydans.
Although many record prices have been set recently, it is exciting to note that, on the whole, photography is among the most affordable of the fine arts. We invite you to view some of the best work in this indispensably vital field at Monroe Gallery of Photography. “I think some of the greatest photojournalism contains information that we were never meant to see”   In the Gallery with Sid and Michelle Monroe
