Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

Sotheby's Photographs sale, Auction Results

Photographs - Auction Results Sotheby's Photographs sale brought $3.8 million and achieved strong prices for the masters of 20th-century photography, including Ansel Adams, Margaret Bourke-White, Edward Steichen and Robert Mapplethorpe.

A new record was set for Ray Metzker's Tall Grove of Nudes, which more than doubled its estimate and achieved $122,500.

Run your mouse over it and select the type, you can read it easily then.

To capture some of this -- I suppose that's lyricism.
