Fine Art Photography in New York City an Heirloom and an Investment
Fine Art Photography is well appreciated in the New York City area. Many of my clients and friends are amassing collections of art. Photographs in particular make for beautiful décor for our homes. Very often, a room is designed around a large fine art portrait since photography can be very personal and reflective of our unique style. “I’ve decorated rooms based on a client’s artwork and other times I design a room then accessorize with photography artwork. I will incorporate artwork to add a splash of color to a room or design a monochromatic room and add lots of punch color with artwork.” says Rose Abby of Rose Abby Design who is an extraordinary interior designer in New Jersey.
There are masses of clients who believe and value top rate photographic work, which is relatively attainable compared to paintings and sculptures. In 2006, Sotheby’s achieved the highest photographic sale price in history, selling Edward Steichen’s “The Pond-Moonlight” for $2,928,000. There were two additional portraits sold of Georgia O’Keeffe by Alfred Stieglitz cracked the million-dollar mark: “Hands,” at $1,472,000, and “Nude,” at $1,360,000. “You can buy one of the icons of art history in the photography genre for the same price as a third-rate Renoir sketch.” says Joshua Holdeman, international director of photographs at auction house Christie’s.
Will you be collecting fine art photography as an investment or an heirloom? Consider photographing your family and appreciate the investment that will be passed down for many generations and remembered as a legacy.
