PHOTOGRAPHY’S LAST CENTURY
Presented by Bill Dobbins
Art photography has become an important aspect of photo collections and found its place in galleries and in museums, like “The Met” – The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
Of course, with most photo images now being created digitally, work originally created on film tends to have a special place in the photo art market.
But the energy of the collector photo market has focused increase interest in historic photographs and photographers and spurred sales of this vintage work. And the more attention this has brought to photographers who may not have been that celebrated in the past. The collection featured in this post is just one example of the emergence of a growing and thriving interest in a variety of important art photographers.
