Debra Klomp Ching

Co-owner & Director
Klompching Gallery, Brooklyn, NY, USA
Established in 2007, the Klompching Gallery specializes in the exhibition and sale of contemporary fine art photographs. It represents an international roster of artists, including the critically-acclaimed John Blakemore, Simon Roberts and Helen Sear amongst others. The gallery has placed photographs into numerous private and public collections, including the George Eastman House of International Photography and Film, Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. It is a member of AIPAD (Association of International Photography Art Dealers) since 2012, and exhibits annually at the New York Photography Show at the Park Avenue Armory, New York. Each July/August the gallery presents FRESH, its Annual Summer Show of emerging talent, curated from an international open call.

Debra Klomp Ching is an experienced reviewer, having attended several notable photography review festivals such as Rhubarb-Rhubarb, FotoFest, Review Santa Fe, Atlanta Celebrates Photography, New York Times Portfolio Review Day and Photolucida. In addition to owning and operating the Klompching Gallery, Debra Klomp Ching is a freelance consultant, writer, curator and adjunct faculty at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Her writing has been published in Magenta Magazine, photo-eye Booklist, (re)collect, Nahtsellen, PDN, and she has been a Guest Editor for Photography Quarterly (issue No. 99). In 2010 she curated (with Darren Ching),
The Architecture of Space, an exhibition of contemporary U.S. photography for the Flash Forward Festival (Toronto). As a private consultant, she provides creative and professional advice to photographers intending to or working within a fine art context, and to collectors of contemporary photography.

Mrs.Ching is interested in seeing resolved bodies of work, and works in progress, that are suitable for exhibition and sale, within the fine art photography market. Work should demonstrate an integrity of intent, originality of vision and excellence in craftsmanship. She is not interested in seeing stock, advertising, fashion, photojournalism or commercial photography. Klompching Gallery can offer exhibition and representation opportunities to photographers that fit into the gallery’s curatorial programming and aesthetic sensibilities, and has exhibited a number of photographers discovered at portfolio reviews. Photographers should present prints, rather than books and/or digital files.
