PhotoSF this week!

If you live in San Francisco or are going to be there this week you cannot miss one of the best events in photography.
Photo SF is happening July 21-23, with a special charity event on Thursday, July 20th, 2006 benefitting Foto Forum SF MOMA
To buy tickets online click here.

The fair itself is a trade show of some of the finest photography dealers in the world that the public is invited to.

You will get a amazing overall sense of where things are in the photography market, both creatively and collecting wise.

The seminars are always great and are not to be missed.

Get a few pass days ,if you have the time, and wander through the event checking out all of the images. Masters and current artists are all represented here.

As a collector, someone starting to collect or just a lover of fine photography this is your event.

We would be surprised if you weren’t tempted to purchase a print or two. A least a few books for your collection.

Take a look on our MEDIA page to hear from Stephen Cohen, the organizer of the event. The video is from Photo LA but he’ll give you a good overview of the series.

We have found the collecting seminars especially good as you tour the exhibit before it opens and an expert in the field gives you a solid overview of the work.

And this year there is a seminar on publishing the photographic book.We’ll bet a few of you would like to check that out.
