I am one of the world's largest private photography dealers and am interested in all areas of photo history from early 19th-century to contemporary. In the 19th-century area, I have a particular interest in quality early paper, including salt prints and paper negatives. I have one of the largest and most diverse paper negative collections (and early glass negatives--prior to 1865--as well) in private hands. Besides the 19th-century, my photographic interests extend to Between-the-Wars material and other 20th-century images, particularly European, to today's contemporary art photography market.
I am a member of AIPAD, the Daguerreian Society, and a founding member of the Getty Museum's Photography Council.
I also write the E-Photo Newsletter, which has the largest circulation of any publication devoted to Photography Collecting.
