Neomodern was created to deliver the professional artists' workflow to consumers.

 

When you care about your photograph, we are your team—Our fine art printers are ready to finish and frame your images, and available to work with you one-on-one, online, to retouch and improve your photos. The best way to make your image perfect is to work with you personally in the finishing.

NEOMODERN is unique. It’s not a print service—we don't just press a button or apply your image onto any object. We care deeply about photography and photographic prints. And it’s not a frame store—we only offer a few styles of high quality frames that are particularly suited for photography. And it’s not even an art gallery—the photographs we show, whether by customers or by famous photographers, are primarily to illustrate great work and photographic principles.

 
Rubin

Michael Rubin
Founder & Chief Photo Officer

Rubin's pedigree swings wide, from making movies with Bernardo Bertolluci, to premastering CDs for the Grateful Dead, to developing the “paint-your-own pottery” studio industry, to years at Netflix. But through it all he’s been an amateur photographer. Last summer he left his Senior Innovator role at Adobe to focus on fine art photography. And then this happened.
