Art Photo Collector

"The way I have always looked at it is, the world is in color. And there’s nothing we can do about that." —William Eggleston 

Tomorrow and Friday, Christie’s New York Photographs sale will take place. I visited the preview today and took note that, out of a plethora of amazing work for sale, this famed Eggleston photograph, Memphis (Tricycle) c.1970, would reign with the highest estimate of $250K-$350K.  Considering that this print is but 13/20, I marveled at the magic of the market.

For those with no interest in the art market, auction house previews offer an excellent opportunity to see a great variety of high-caliber work in one setting. Yes, the rarified atmosphere can sometimes be a bit much, but I find it’s easy enough to focus on the breadth of work available. To see iconic historic and contemporary photographs from the masters of the medium is a worthwhile way to while away an afternoon.  —Lane Nevares
