119 rue Vieille-du-Temple

The gallery and bookshop Écho 119 was founded in 2016 by Noëlle Colin, who has shared her life between France and Japan for many years. Specialising in photography, the gallery presents the work of established and emerging photographers, with a particular focus on Japanese artists.
Without ever deviating from this double culture which makes its identity and determines its line, the Écho 119 gallery has been enriched by new artistic sensibilities, whose common point is the practice of an art concerned with environmental, geopolitical, societal or intimate issues.
Whatever the approach adopted by the artists we exhibit - documentary or personal - it is necessarily coupled with an important formal preoccupation, an aesthetic research that makes their images intellectually and visually powerful works of art.

Since its inauguration, Echo 119 has exhibited the work of Shoji Ueda, Nobuyoshi Araki, Sakiko Nomura, Grégoire Eloy, Elliott Verdier, Chieko Shiraishi and Herbie Yamachuchi.
In the spirit of the Japanese photographic tradition, the Echo 119 gallery also offers a wide selection of photo books, from the latest releases to rare editions.

To find this atypical place, nestled in the heart of the Marais and sheltered from the noise of the street, ring the bell at 119 rue Vieille du Temple in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris. Go through the large black door and enter the courtyard: the gallery is behind the hedge on your left.
