In 1984, TORCH Gallery was established by Adriaan van der Have as a podium for Dutch and foreign contemporary Art. In those days the medium photography was not even referred to as an art form. Van der Have offered the medium the chance it needed to let the artist raise photography to art. The careers of internationally renowned Dutch photographers such as Anton Corbijn and Inez van Lamsweerde started their career with the gallery. TORCH presented wonder children from the international art world to the Netherlands. Nowadays he represents prestigious artists such as Anthony Goicolea and Loretta lux.
