Živa Kraus, Impronta, 1972, Charcoal drawing | Courtesy of Živa Kraus and Ikona Photo Gallery, Venice

Passionate and intense, to tell the essence of IKONA Photo Gallery, are the images of the great photographers that the gallery has hosted over time, in its various locations, where great world photography has always been and continues to be at home, treasure trove of memories or fleeting glimmer of eternal truths, testifying, together with the pictorial works of Živa Kraus, the international character of IKONA Venezia and the curatorial, critical and galleristic work of Kraus, who founded it in 1979.
