Maybe you just want to look. Or buy that limited edition book that you will not see anywhere else. We’ve already come across an out of print book that we’re picking up for our weekly giveaway.
Think about this though..in these economically challenged times, one of the best places to invest is in quality art. The real collectors have been jumping in with both feet. And with your knowledge of photography, you will be able to make an intelligent purchase. Or be guided by a reputable dealer.
This is not for the Hedge Fund folks who just want to come in, flip it, and get out. This is a buy and hold market.
But the joy you may get from seeing a quality photograph in your home, will probably surpass that on-line statement of whatever you have at this point.
We have found this to be true. And gratifying.
So all of that being said, this art fair has gathered, once again, a stellar group of world class dealers and photographs. Today we’ll be making one more round to select some photographers that have stood out to us in the past days, and then we’ll supply links so everyone can take a look.
A few more images from yesterday:
[photopress:PF8_1072.jpg,full,centered] Photographer Bernard Demenge was on hand to present his work. He likes to make faces.
[photopress:PF8_1076.jpg,full,centered] Still time to pick up your books. Unless you go to Japan, you will not see this huge selection again.
[photopress:PF8_1112.jpg,full,centered] The crowds were finding their way through the thousands of images.
[photopress:PF8_1073.jpg,full,centered] Not everyone was content to look. Some had to create anew.
Lot’s more going on in Paris and photography, and we’re heading out to catch some more.
And regarding the above comments about buying a photograph; it’s not like we’re saying adopt a pet. We’re saying it’s an investment for you and your fellow artists and your financial future. Kinda of that ld wheel going around too, when you invest in a younger artist.
Someone had to buy Edward Weston’s first photos.
I’ll bet they didn’t pay that much, either.
