“To collect photography is to collect the world.” - Susan Sontag
Photography captures time, a moment of reality never to be repeated. Since its invention in 1839, the medium has evolved into different styles and genres, some of which include: documentary, photo-abstraction, digital manipulations, fashion and commercial photography.
From Warhol’s polaroids and haunting beauty of Francesca Woodman’s portraiture to the upcoming Ryan McGinley, photography has remained a longstanding contributor to the art world, and one of its best investments. Available to purchase as limited edition prints, photography is a great way to start building a striking contemporary art collection.
