We created Lux Archive for one reason: to make it easy for you to buy fine art photography. Whoever you are, a seasoned collector or an art lover looking for their first great piece, you’ve come to the right place.
We’ve hand selected the best images from established photographers around the globe and have made those images available with prices starting as low as a hundred bucks. Each museum quality print comes with a certificate of authenticity individually signed by the artist. We sell only limited edition prints — guaranteeing that you own a unique piece of art.
You may not like everything but we’re sure you’ll like something. Our mantra for curating photography is: good looks and an engaging personality. It’s got to look good — or what’s the point of having it up on your wall? And it’s got to engage the viewer. Lot’s of people can take a pretty picture but few can take images that also generate a response. That response is what art is all about. If it doesn’t move you, don’t move with it.
Did we mention that we’ve got good karma? The majority of our proceeds are given to the artists who create these works. So when you buy art from Lux Archive you’re directly supporting artists. That’s a good feeling now isn’t it?
One could spend a lifetime sorting through all the artwork in the world. Let us make that our life’s work. We’ll bring our best finds straight to your inbox. So sign up for email updates and join us on Facebook and Twitter to stay in the know about the new art we introduce each week.
Lux Archive was founded by Zack Seckler. Zack is a successful photographer who’s won many major industry awards and been published in magazines like TIME, Haarper’s Bazaar, New York, Men’s Health and many others. Aside from being a photographer he’s also the type of guy that when he sees a need for something he likes to go out and build a solution himself.
In 2007, Zack wanted to learn more about how the best photographers in the world create their work so he started an online magazine called The F STOP. Since it’s launch, Zack has featured over fifty of the most talented photographers worldwide and shared that information with hundreds of thousands of readers for free.
Seckler launched Lux Archive after finding that the online art market was not only a brilliant way to bring art to a large audience but that it was also still in its infancy; and there was plenty of opportunity for new venues with different curatorial visions.
An idea was born:
1. Create an approachable atmosphere where visitors can easily browse through high-quality photography created by established artists
2. Offer a tiered pricing structure making the same image available in multiple sizes with multiple price points
3. Add new work on a regular basis
4. Offer excellent customer service and a hassle-free return policy so customers won’t feel uncomfortable buying art online.
5. Produce the prints in-house using premium materials to both ensure quality and allow artists to spend more time making their art.
6. Pay the artists the majority of the profits.
A year and half later Lux Archive is now a reality!
We already have an incredibly talented group of artists and we can’t wait to introduce you to new works at affordable prices on a regular basis.
