Mission Statement
TINTERA was founded in order to shine light on these past photographers and on those working today. We manage photographic collections, represent fine art photographers working in Egypt, and advise on the acquisition and sales of photography. The name TINTERA takes its inspiration from the ancient Egyptian town of Dendera where a relief on the walls of the Temple of Hathor shows the sun projecting its rays on the land. When the medium of photography was introduced in 1839 photographers flocked to Egypt not only to capture the hieroglyphic inscriptions and monuments, but because they were also drawn to the abundance of light, the most essential component of photography. Throughout the 20th century Egypt continued to be a destination for the biggest names in photography and remains one of the most photographed places in the world.
