Light Factory Auction

November 23, 2010

Last Friday night, November 20th, The Light Factory had their Annual Photography Auction and this year it was a huge success with approximately 300 people in attendance. I am pleased to report the sale of my donated piece titled “Private Moments” works in progress, inspired a sale price of $1450 which was above the asking price of $1200.

Private moments, works in progress

Photography is really making headway in the art world.

“New record for Richard Avedon photography sales

Paris has been celebrating the art of photography this month with a battery of exhibitions, one of the world’s major photography fairs, Paris-Photo, which ended on Sunday, and some high profile auctions. Here it was Christie’s which stole the limelight with 65 works by renowned fashion photographer, Richard Avedon, who died in 2004. All 65 were sold, the highest price, and a new record, being £719,000 for a unique seven foot high print of a model, Dovima, posing in a Christian Dior evening dress with elephants from the Cirque d’Hiver, Paris, in 1955. This particular print, the largest of this image, was made in 1978 for Avedon’s fashion retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and was bought by Maison Christian Dior.”
