In Black and White Photography, Gallerist, Photo Print Collector on October 5, 2013 at 6:33 pm


Taught by a collecting veteran, this workshop is a nonstop, fact-filled “boot camp” that provides a bird’s-eye view of the photography marketplace.The course begins in the classroom discussing the market and the due diligence needed to buy photographs today. Over the next sessions, the class visits not-for-profit and commercial galleries in Chelsea and Midtown, looking at photographs and meeting with dealers. Discussion topics include: issues to consider before spending a penny; fair pricing; gallery versus auction house; how to assess markings (stamps, signatures, editions); and administrative chores such as caring for photographs. Participants take away a greater understanding of the photography marketplace and the tools necessary to become a thoughtful collector.
