|Statement||I began my serious involvement with photography some 20 years ago, as a collector. My response as a private dealer is influenced by my experiences as a collector. The work that I am most passionate about, that I collect for myself, is the work that I want to show to others. If I can share my enthusiasm and understanding of this work with another collector then I have done a service to the artist and to the collector, and fulfilled my sense of mission. - Peter Hay Halpert|
