Mexican born photographer Manuel Moncayo’s work is a search for the quiet and the simple. He swapped the tropical weather and virgin beaches of Mexico for the cold and concrete buildings of Berlin where he now lives, and where he found the openness to nudity. He has a sharp eye for men, nature and color. His images are very personal, and many come from his own photo diaries. He photographs in empty spaces, mostly nature, where his pictures have no reference to the times we live in. They are the perfect antidote to the current world crisis.

The Little Black Gallery was originally set up by Tamara Beckwith Veroni, Lindsey Carlos Clarke and Ghislain Pascal in 2008, with a gallery space in Chelsea, London for ten years.
Today the business, co-owned by Ghislain Pascal and Tamara Beckwith Veroni, exists without a permanent gallery space, putting on exhibitions worldwide at galleries, museums, art-fairs, and pop-ups; manages artists; publishes books and magazines; and acts as an art consultant.
