A Photography Collector... Auction Secret... iGavel.com

A Photography Collector Auction Secret!!

OK.. My little MAO-ettes..There's a cool new photo auction up on IGAVEL.COM

Actually, We're almost hesitant to even tell people about this one.. cause our greedy self we would rather keep this gem all to ourself!! So if anyone sees MAO bidding.. You all have to promise, DON'T BID against MAO!! THANKS.

Herb_ritts_naomi_campbellSo..It's smaller than Sotheby's, Christies and Phillips but this up and coming photo auction is run by the almost too honest to be a NYC art dealer, a real photo professional, and ex-Sotheby's specialist Daniel Cooney Fine Art <http://www.danielcooneyfineart.com/>

This time Dan's put together a very high quality sale of 68 lots

Auction photo's include work by : Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Luis Gonzalez Palma, Herb Ritts, , Edward Steichen, Edward Curtis, Bert Stern, Todd Webb, George Tice, Helen Levitt, Wynn Bullock, Bruce Davidson, Brett Weston, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Greg Gorman, Mona Kuhn, Candida Hofer, and John Dugdale just to name drop a few!

(Photo by Herb Ritts, Naomi Campbell, 1990, 20 x 16, signed, #15/25, Lot 1090553)

Wow!! That's one impressive list!! And many of them will sell for some really low prices.

Some of these lots have sweet low reserve levels, there's even several lots with starting bids of $200! There's also a few lots of hard to find photo books and vintage Aperture magazines... FYI...they are the next hot art collectible!!

So, you have a few (7) days left to go and inspect the lots before bidding.  They are all at a gallery in Chelsea :

Vintage Aperture Magazines.... you are so right on that one. I recently decided it would be great to try to acquire a complete set of Aperture, went on Ebay, and was completely depressed by the prices the old issues are selling for. Sigh.... I'm always behind the collecting trends.

hi MAO hope the summer is going well and looking at this blog ,I would have to say it is.So take the A train to Harlem to the Studio Museum ... I think it may put a smile on your face

It is a nice little auction.
