LUMAS takes you to the heart of interior photography. Our curated collection of original and limited edition prints showcases the very best of the genre, giving you an insider’s view of architecture from around the world. We work with around 200 photographers to bring you hand-signed interior photo prints that will make you rethink the spaces you inhabit day in, day out.
Beyond Four Walls: Interior Photos as Art
Interior pictures communicate a private perspective on the world. They afford rare glimpses of spaces normally hidden from view by locked doors or shuttered windows. Drawing the eye inward, this intimate genre sparks contemplation and a sense of communion between the viewer and subject that is unique.
In the history of art, interior paintings have often gone hand-in-hand with still life pictures—perhaps best exemplified by the Dutch masterpieces of the 17th century. These paintings feature elaborate displays of objects, flora, and fauna. The play of light and shadow cast across these arrangements were evidence of the technical skill of the painter.
Taking its cue from traditional interior paintings, contemporary interior photography favours natural light and careful composition. More than specific details, today’s interpretations exude mood and atmosphere.
These elements feature in the prints displayed in our online store and at our gallery locations across the globe. At LUMAS, we believe that great original photography should be celebrated and shared. So we connect art lovers with high-quality prints from their favourite artists. It’s a system that respects the photographer, the work, and gives you—the viewer—an unprecedented opportunity to become a collector of fine interior pictures.
Exclusive Interior Paintings for Your Collection
LUMAS excels in breaking down the walls of the art world. We’re committed to sharing original art, and the indescribable feeling of collecting it, with a broad audience of art lovers. For us, interior photography is about welcoming the world into a closed space, only to break it open onto another world.
We work in close collaboration with the artist to find the ideal frame and mounting technique for each of our limited edition prints. This ensures that we stay true to the integrity of the original work and vision of the artist. Both of which are important factors for transmitting the true feel and detailing of an interior photo. We then turn to the photo developing experts at WhiteWall to produce print runs of the highest quality possible with further guidance from the artists.
Each LUMAS Edition comes with the handwritten signature of the artist and an Edition Certificate that authenticates the work. Depending on factors such as the size of the print run and the demand for the artist’s work, these documents will help your interior photo appreciate in value over time.
Added to this, the team at WhiteWall will ensure that your piece looks its very best for years to come.
Original Interior Pictures from Renowned Artists
LUMAS collaborates with artists working in diverse fields. That means that our interior photography collection embraces fashion, contemporary interior painting, and architectural documentation. Ultimately, each work is unique and speaks volumes for itself.
You’ll find that it’s worthwhile to visit one of our galleries in your city, or spend some time browsing our easy-to-navigate website to get expert recommendations. Find prints by exciting artists we’re working with today, and get to know some new names in the art world. The only other place you’ll possibly see a LUMAS Edition interior photo print is at a museum or gallery exhibition, where the artist has contributed their own copies. Otherwise, the limited print run ensures the piece remains rare and valuable.
Those searching for gifts or a more affordable entry point into our Signed Edition collection should take a peek at our Art Under $100 section; it’s full of high-quality prints and photobooks that will delight art collectors.
