THE PHOTOGRAPHERS

28 September - 30 October 2010

43 photographers in a museum quality survey of twentieth-century photography.

Photography is the most culturally significant art form of the last 150 years, and yet prints are still available at prices that are low compared to other types of art. The market for photographs is large and varied, and is also full of opportunity in terms of price but more importantly, content. As a reproducible medium, it is possible for a collector to purchase a masterpiece that also hangs in museums worldwide, but also to make discoveries that no one else can own.

In The Photographers', our first photographic exhibition to include international names, we have succeeded in demonstrating this appealing aspect of the market. Included are such celebrated images as Melancholic Tulip (1939) by André Kertész, The Daughter of the Dancers (1933) by Manuel Álvarez Bravo and a spectacular print of Winston Churchill (1941) by Yousuf Karsh. But, we also offer such lesser-known gems as Boy with a calf (1908) by Lewis Hine, Self Portrait in a Distorting Mirror (1950) by Eve Arnold, Study of a Marble Figure by Edwin Smith, and extraordinary, beautiful, camera-less images by Paul Kenny.
