Recent Claude Cahun photograph sale

A vintage Claude Cahun photograph recently sold at Christie's. Claude Cahun was a female photographer active in France and Jersey (Channel Islands) during the 1920's-1940's. Her work focuses on identity and gender, which was revolutionary for the time.

Claude Cahun, Autoportrait, 1929, tirage argentique, 23.8 x 17.8 cm. (9 3/8 x 7 in.)

Claude Cahun was the initial inspiration of dnj's recent exhibition, Claude Cahun and After. Our show featured four vintage self-portraits by Cahun, alongside work by five different contemporary photographers whose series explore similar themes of identity.

Five contemporary photographers: Clay Lipsky, Tam Tran, Corey Grayhorse, Sia Aryai, and Ni Rong, were featured alongside four vintage Cahun photographs at dnj Gallery's recent exhibition.

Three of the four featured Cahun photographs are currently available for purchase at dnj Gallery. dnj's vintage Cahuns can be viewed here. If interested, please inquire at the gallery about all works available.
