Source Photographica, was established by Philip Kulpa who has been an active participant in both the Australian and International visual arts industry for 25 years. As investor, seller and
observer, what started out originally as a vintage photography collector’s passion, has seen
Philip develop into a compelling photography authority.
This consuming passion for Australian photography had a natural flow on effect and has progressed to the international photography market.
Philip travels regularly to important shows globally: Paris Photo, AIPAD New York. He has contacts and relationships with many Auction houses worldwide and his formidable knowledge is now recognised internationally. It is this reputation that has increasingly seen Philip called on to curate for several important private collections in Australia and abroad.
Not content with collecting, consulting, buying and selling, Philip has now added Artist’s Representative to his resume. The focus is on supporting and showing established and emerging contemporary artists locally and internationally.
In late 2013 Source Photographica opened its doors in Aspen, USA, with the Alfred Gregory exhibition. The gallery has now relocated to Melbourne Australia but will continue to offer Aspen clients photography sales and advice.
