Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I have a recent interest in collecting photography. 'How to buy photographs' by Stuart Bennett is a good source of historical knowledge. Understanding how photography collections are considered and refused has provided a point of great interest. What prints are valuable and the reasons behind this? The book I have just noticed is from Christies collectors library.I collect books(in a v small way) on a regular basis. The photography books are used by me for lesson planning or just enjoying and deteriorate over time. The enjoyment of books causes de-valuing, that is not the case with photographs. They are appreciated and enjoyed without financial loss. (Normally)
I would like to go and see some exhibitions and I am based in the London area. Any recommendations or what to avoid would be much appreciated.
