555 Gallery specializes in bringing the work of a growing number of emerging and established fine art photographers to collectors and buyers in Boston and internationally. In 2013, the creation of 555 Gallery in Boston came from Susan Nalband’s personal admiration for the work of the many talented artists evolving in this new era of contemporary photography.
Nalband has over thirty years of experience as a photographer, a serial entrepreneur, an installation director and an art consultant. She was raised in Minneapolis, and was heavily influenced by her family’s love of art and artists and the Walker Art Center’s collection of the work of the 20th century art giants.
“Photography is best seen and enjoyed in person. Online images are fleeting and easy to click through. But to have the opportunity to see the work as a finished expression of the photographer's vision and glimpse at the world as someone else sees it, can be a transformative experience." -Susan Nalband
555 Gallery is the newest gallery in Boston dedicated to contemporary fine art photography, endeavoring to bring interesting, meaningful exhibitions and events to the area while supporting the work of talented artists.
The gallery is located in South Boston, where old industrial and new residential meet the Seaport and Innovation Districts. The gallery resides in 2000 square feet of a renovated 1950s manufacturing plant.
Nalband lives in South Boston, loves outsiders, Brooklyn and Martha’s Vineyard.
