No Reserve Photo Auction Today!
Today is the start of the Fall Season Photography
food fight Auctions! WooHooo!
Today at 2pm Christies has put together a small, almost 100% B & W photo auction. The one twist is the entire auction will be sold without any reserve (minimum bid). So some of these lots may sell for way under their market value if there's little interest. In the past there's always one or two lots that go for almost nothing.. like $100 to $200!
Today most of the lots have pre-sale estimated prices well below $5,000. While there are very few iconic or important images up for sale, I think Christies intentionally low balled these estimate to
sucker draw prospective buyers.
I liked Lot #45, by Larry Clark, Untitled, 1991, 1 from an edition of 2, print. Est $2,000 - 3,000. Christies put it on the back cover of their catalog.. but they got the edition size wrong in the listing.
So, we shall see...
