The Photo Review is currently holding an auction after-sale that you don’t want to miss this holiday season. This is a unique opportunity for beginning and experienced collectors alike to bid on works by renowned artists such as Berenice Abbott, Eugène Atget, Édouard Baldus, Ilse Bing, Curtis, Frantisek Drtikol, Maxime Du Camp, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, and Lisette Model among many others. 

The Photo Review Benefit Auction did very well this year. But as always some lots did not meet their minimum reserves and were bought in. So once again we are having a sealed bid auction of unsold lots from this year’s auction.

Absentee bidding closes at 5 p.m. EST on December 10, 2017.

Please be sure to review the 2017 Auction After-Sale Rules for important information about the sale.

We will also honor our “End This Auction” feature through the closing date: bid the high estimate and the auction ends immediately and the lot is yours.

Thank you again for your support.

With best wishes for the holiday season,

Sincerely,

Stephen Perloff

Editor

The latest competition sponsored by Stephen Perloff’s  The Photo Review, is over and the 2009 winners announced (Juried by Lesley Martin, Publisher, Aperture Book Program). The Grand Prize went to Daniel Traub of Philadelphia.

Our favorite of the competition, for his Black and White work, was Shigei Yoshida of Brooklyn. His overwhelming shadows and special use of light particularly impresses the viewer.

We wish to “plug” the Photo Review and the ancillary publications Mr. Perloff is associated with in this field of photo collection. All are excellent resources for fine art photography lovers.

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.
