HackelBury was founded over twenty-five years ago by Marcus Bury and Sascha Hackel. We are committed to championing artists working with the visual arts who push the boundaries of their medium to create meaningful and contemplative work.


The London-based gallery initially showcased classic photography from the 20th century, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Berenice Abbott, and Malick Sidibe. The transition from traditional photography to more conceptual work was as intuitive as it was organic, beginning with artists such as Pascal Kern, Doug and Mike Starn, Garry Fabian Miller, Katja Liebmann, Ian McKeever, Stephen Inggs and Bill Armstrong. In recent years the gallery has also taken on emerging artists such as Oli Kellett, Nadezda Nikolova and Alys Tomlinson.


Each artist, whether emerging or established, creates work defined by a depth of thought and consistency of approach. The small group of artists with whom HackelBury work represent a diversity of practice yet share an artistic integrity which we are fully committed to supporting in the long term.


HackelBury - Hampshire

The London gallery added the private HackelBury Hampshire space in 2017 to house larger and more diverse projects. Collaborating with private collectors, curators, art fairs, publishers and museums, HackelBury’s passion and curatorial focus is the bedrock of what we do. We engage with our clients’ interest in an artist and work closely with them to identify appropriate work for their budget and available space. Our commitment to inform the client about all aspects of the artists’ practice and their place in the market enables us to nurture loyal and enduring relationships.


Studio Visits

Our approach to collectors aims to build long-term relationships and a dynamic conduit direct to the artists. The focus is on illuminating the ideas and philosophy of each artist, and the experience of the work itself – what it means to us on a visceral level. This offers a more personal and considered way of collecting.
