2017 Photo Benefit Auction

I’m very pleased to once again support the Baxter St / Camera Club of NY benefit photography auction. The Camera Club of NY is an invaluable resource for artists, curators and collectors. Last year, I attended the sale and was able to purchase a contemporary tintype by Galina Kurlat. I put it on my desk and looked at it for the next few months, until I felt compelled to get in touch with her to see some more work. I’ve subsequently acquired two more pieces. Galina is an artist I didn’t know about, but thanks to the auction, I was able to get to know her, and her work. This year’s auction presents more opportunities for beginning and established collectors to support a very worthy institution and get to see some terrific photography. I urge you to attend, or bid online!
