Stewart & Skeels - a new dealership in historic and collectable photography

Lindsey Stewart and Joanna Skeels are a new specialist dealership in early photographs and related printed and manuscript material, focusing on British material from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Stewart & Skeels also represent Mike Seaborne and the Roger Mayne Archive. As well as buying and selling photographs and photographically illustrated books, it acts as agents for the sale of photographic collections, with an emphasis on placing significant historical work in public institutions. Our other services include auction commissions (viewing, advising and bidding at auction on your behalf) and valuations for insurance, probate and sale.

Before forming Stewart & Skeels, Joanna and Lindsey worked together at the London antiquarian bookseller Bernard Quaritch Ltd, where Joanna began her experience in the book trade in 2010 after graduating from Oxford University. She soon began working with Lindsey, who had established a department there specialising in photography after more than two decades running the photograph department at Christie’s in London. During this period they collaborated with colleagues to promote photography through catalogues and a book publishing programme, and completed sales of major collections, notably the Terry Bennett collection of early Chinese photographs and the Mackinnon collection of early Scottish photography. As an independent consultant since 1986 Lindsey has also advised national and international museums, archives and universities as well as corporate and private collectors. She is an associate member of the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association.

Stewart & Skeels will be exhibiting at Photo London in May.
