To sustain a long-term commitment to arts, the private bank Neuflize OBC initiated its corporate foundation 20 years ago. This structure is dedicated to patrimonial institutions in visual practices in order to support exhibitions for museums, educational programs and heritage action. As the first patron of photography, and with the desire of providing direct support to artists, Neuflize OBC also launched its collection, now counting nearly 1000 contemporary photography and video works. Focusing on portraiture, identity and human representation, the Collection includes more than 350 artists, most of them European. A large communication plan includes events, guided tours and loans to the most famous festivals and galleries.
