Leku, as its Basque name implies, means place.

We wanted to give photography the place it deserved within the paradigms in which works of art are judged.

Leku is a work space and is a starting point for experimentation and reflection on the role of photography in contemporary art. A place run by a team of art historians where artists and collectors feel supported by our dissemination and orientation.

Photography has been from its origins, an instrument to attempt to appropriate fleeting moments, situations that continuously remains in the past, to preserve and build memory and to give a testimony “as real as possible” of the here and now of history.
Each artist owns a unique and unrepeatable aesthetic.

We work with creative people, true builders of viewing points who question thinking common spaces as materials and techniques; eclectic artists, owners of a definite and distinct personality who are constantly moving, agile, restless and curious. Artists who reach, with “a piece of reality”, to create an absolutely distinctive vision and let the other build its own story from the work.
