Who We Are
OstLicht is a group of specialists and passionate photography devotees with years of professional experience in the field. We use our expertise to find unique hidden gems or works of promising newcomers to the art scene and share them with the photo admirers’ community worldwide.

The company was founded by entrepreneur and photo enthusiast Peter Coeln who for more than two decades now has provided collectors worldwide with the most sought-after vintage cameras and prints available. He established the Leica Shop in Vienna’s 7thdistrict, a mecca for every camera aficionado and also launched WestLicht Museum, whose exhibition programme and unique collection of historic cameras attracts visitors from all over the world, and WestLicht Photographica Auction, which twice a year offers masterpieces of fine art photography and rare vintage cameras and has built a history of record-breaking results.
