Preview: The Photo Review 2015 Benefit Auction

In Auction, Black and White Photography, Photo Print Collector on October 26, 2015 at 6:19 pm


As with any field of art these days, sometimes an organization can really benefit from a little bit of help. The Photo Review is no exception, and that’s why they have their annual auction coming up on November 7th at 7pm.

The Photo Review is a critical journal of national scope and international readership. Publishing since 1976, the Photo Review covers photography events throughout the country and serves as a central resource for the Mid-Atlantic region. With incisive reviews, exciting portfolios, lively interviews, the latest in books and exhibitions, The Photo Review quarterly journal has earned a reputation as one of the best serious photography publications being produced today. Our writers — including A.D. Coleman, Stephen Perloff, Shelley Rice, Peter Hay Halpert, Barbara L. Michaels, Jean Dykstra, and Mark Power — have weighed in on subjects as varied as the posthumous publication of work by Diane Arbus, women in photography, the growth of digital media, the historical movement from Pictorialism into Modernism, etc., etc. In his ongoing series, “The Censorship Diaries,” Editor Stephen Perloff was in the forefront in covering the controversy over funding for the NEA and censorship of the arts.

The Photo Review has earned a reputation for lucid and incisive writing aimed at an intelligent and informed audience, but free of the cant and jargon that infects much contemporary writing about art. Thus, both arts publications and the popular press have looked to us for interpretations of what’s happening on the photography scene. Articles have been reprinted in such publications as Afterimage, To, Photography in New York, American Photo, and others.

Editor Stephen Perloff, a respected writer, educator and photographer, has been interviewed for the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Bucks County Courier Times, and Art Matters. He has received two critic’s fellowships from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.

For those who live in the Philadelphia area or will be nearby at the time of the auction, the Photo Review has lined up a spectacular array of works from classic and modern photographers located near and far away. A broad range of 19th-century and vernacular photographs will be available as well.

Concurrent with the live auction will be a silent auction, where people will be able to acquire everything from photography equipment to restaurant meals.

The preview for the auction will start on Friday, November 6th (11-6pm) and end just prior to the start of the auction the next day.
