Photography as an art commodity is a relatively new concept, one that only really started to appear in the 1960s and 1970s. For most people, it is still difficult to understand how to evaluate and, more importantly, how to value a photographic print. At the same time, it is an art form that we are all familiar with and that all of us have plenty of lying around the house. Whether it is a modern digital print that you purchased at a local art show or a classic darkroom print that you found at an estate sale or that your grandparents had in their house, it is always good to know the history and the value of a photograph.
I have been working as an art consultant, with a specialization in photography, for over 20 years now. That includes artist representation, gallery sales, art estimation and consulting. I specialize in mid 20th century classic black and white photography, but have also worked with everything from 19th century daguerreotypes to 21st century digital prints.
I can handle any project, whether you are simply looking to buy a print for yourself or a loved one and want to know what to look for (or to purchase from my wide network of artists and galleries), want to decorate an entire office, business or home within a certain budget, are looking to invest in photography, or want to get a print or collection of prints evaluated for resale or for insurance purposes - or maybe you simply want to know whether grandma's collection of photographs of DC from before WWII are of any value.
I can walk you through the process, prepare a budget for you, arrange for resale, find you a buyer or seller, get your purchase matted and framed, or even just tell you the best way to hang and light the artwork you already have.
