Ray Charles LA '85

Ray Charles, LA, 1985.

The Aperature Foundation and Christie’s of NYC present the first ever auction of silver gelatin prints by Norman Seeff; acclaimed pop culture photographer, and producer of some of the world’s most enduring images of musicians, moguls, actors, and athletes over the past forty years.

Known for illustriously bringing out the true spirits of his subjects, Seeff worked independently and with United Artist Records to create some of the greatest album covers of the 1970s and 1980s. Displayed in magazines such as Rolling Stone, Time  and Life, vintage prints by Seeff are extremely rare, and this collections includes authentic “work prints,” which were physically presented to artists and agents for approval and often became the basis for the world’s perception of some of the greatest stars at the time.

Christie’s online-only auction will run September 27 – October 9, 2013
