The first online art gallery focused solely on art photography of and by artists from Suriname.
+597 Photography offers you the possibility to buy quality Suriname photography artworks online and have these delivered to your house or office. All artworks are exclusively developed on the highest quality fine art paper and are available in different sizes.
Currently, the + 597 gallery (+597 is the country code of Suriname) offers the work of six photographers from Suriname – each with their own distinctive style. The photographers have been personally approached and the work carefully selected by the founder and curator.
Our founder Chantal Kartaram is a marketing professional with a deep love for photography and Suriname. With almost 20 years of work experience in the field of art photography, international advertising & design in Europe, she has led many photography projects. Started out as a photography producer in both advertising and fashion, she quickly moved on to be an agent at a renowned international photographers agency. This experience led her to help start up two art photography projects, that both resulted in international recognition: Before They Pass Away by Jimmy Nelson and Streets of The World by Jeroen Swolfs.
Moving to her beloved country of birth – Suriname – led to setting up +597 Photography. A way to share her passion for photography in combination with her love for Suriname.
