ABOUT MONOCHROME HUB
PHOTOGRAPHY IS OUR PASSION
The story of MONOCHROME Hub started back in 2018 when the photographer Ivailo Stanev-Álvarez opened the first MONOCHROME Hub gallery in Valencia, Spain.
As a professional photographer and photo editor for more than 15 years for magazines such as Esquire, Maxim, Playboy, Harper's Bazaar, Elegance, he rides on the expertise, lessons learnt and creative freedoms that span his career. With the opening of the gallery he created a spot where he gave what's most valuable to every collector - a live contact with the artist, an intimacy with the photographic art.
For a short time, the interest and demand of the customers, as well as the increasing global trend of buying photography at the international art markets, quickly outlined the future path of Monochrome Hub.
At MONOCHROME Hub we want to give everyone the power to access contemporary photographic art. The primary goal of the gallery is to provide a diverse selection of comprehensive and expert-curated collections of limited edition gallery-quality photographs.
Our team of art experts is in a constant search of extraordinary pieces of art from established and exciting young-up-coming talents. We are regularly adding new artists to our portfolio, so that we are able to create a tightly curated selection of contemporary and classic photographic art.
Our concept is to make photography accessible to all, that's why we offer our artworks in a large range of formats at affordable prices. Every size is discussed with the author so it can best suit the photograph.
MEET THE FOUNDER
I've been working as a professional photographer for about 25 years. I grew up shooting film and learned how to develop and print my own negatives at the age of 13.
All those years my primary inspiration in photography were and still are the people, that's why I started my career working as a fashion and advertising photographer. Over the years I’ve shot numerous covers for the magazines Esquire, Playboy, Maxim, FHM, Harper's Bazaar, Elegance and Dali Magazine. As well as a photographer I worked as a photo editor of Esquire and Dali Magazine.
Photography is my passion and my life. During the years I made a big collection of artworks from very famous photographers as well as young talents just starting their path as artists. I started collecting to support my colleagues' work but that quickly turned into my main passion.
This collection was the foundation I stepped over to create the MONOCHROME Hub Gallery. Though I started showing in the gallery my commercial artworks and my personal projects which are my very own inspirations and experimentations in photography, I also started exhibiting young artists, deserving to be seen.
So now the main aim, me and my team set to MONOCHROME Hub Gallery, is to empower the creative minds in photography, to support their work and give visibility to their art.
I hope you will like MONOCHROME Hub!
Enjoy the art of photography!
