Whether nurturing new musicians or launching the career of a promising visual artist, Marie Gomis-Trezise is best described as a serial scout of the best and brightest talent around. The groundbreaking creative director first made waves in the music industry as France’s first Black A&R in a major company. In developing her artists’ sound and image she fell in love with photography – that was the acorn from which GALERIE NUMBER 8 grew.


Bringing together a new wave of photographers, predominantly from the African diaspora and global south, GALERIE NUMBER 8 champions artists with an unflinching gaze – those creatives whose work seeks to dismantle cultural barriers and sexual constructs.
