specialises in contemporary fine art photography. On one level Troika Editions
is the place for the discerning culture vulture to buy photographic prints at reasonable prices, but there is much more to this site than just selling prints, for Troika is really an online homage to photography itself.
THE FRONT ROOM GALLERY
is the companion site to a real gallery space, The Front Room, in Clerkenwell. Visit the site for information on current exhibitions and talks at the gallery.
Troika masterfully bridges the gap between gallery and online gallery, ensuring that as much is going on online, as is at the gallery. With a brilliantly edited blog that features a photograph everyday, on a weekly changing theme (at time of writing the focus is boxes) there is always something new and interesting to look at. There is a video interview of each artist, in which they talk about their work and techniques. A weekly newsletter is available (just sign up to receive this) which includes news and commentary on recent exhibitions and events at the Front Room Gallery. Meanwhile, the selection of work available to buy on the site is of exceptionally high quality.
If you are even mildly interested in photography as an art form, spare a moment for Troika Editions.
