The walls of NEOMODERN are covered with authentic examples of inspiring photography: the permanent collection of NEOMODERN is selected from hundreds of modernist photographers—Ansel Adams, Cartier-Bresson, Kertesz, Callahan, Lavenson... just to name a few.  Also included are selected prints from our customers, which we occasionally feature when we discover something outstanding. It might be yours.

Signing Station

Signing your artwork can be enormously satisfying, and it’s a nice finishing touch before it's matted and framed. Write a special message to your loved ones, visible on the print or hidden underneath the window mat.


You can hide many things under the mat: A little message of love from parents to their newborn child. Written and sealed into the frame, perhaps not to be discovered for years... decades... it could be like a buried treasure, to be revealed at some long distant time. A time capsule found by your descendants. Or maybe it's much closer. Perhaps it becomes an object of family lore: your newborn knows to open the frame on her 21st birthday. Or 50th. You can put a secret here. A poem. We give you space and materials to do this before we frame. It creates an object like no other.



We believe that any person’s photographic skills will improve just by spending time with and looking at these classic pieces. SEE THE 50
