Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The National Portrait Gallery has acquired eleven portraits, including one self portrait, shown right) by Philippe Garner. Garner will be known to many as an auctioneer who started the first auctions of photography in the United Kingdom in 1971 at Sotheby's before he moved to Christie's, where he is remains a consultant.
Garner had kept his interest as a phootgrapher discretely hidden during his auction career but his subjects reflect his involvement with photography, and include curators, photographers and critics. He felt the time was now right to make his own photography public.
Read an interview with Garner here where he talks about his own photography.
