Photographic bites from the Big Apple

October is one of two periods each year when New York salerooms put the spotlight on photographs, Anne Crane writes. Our highlights range from mid-19th century daguerreotypes to works from the 21st century

Photograph sales


Sotheby’s start their series on September 28 with 94 lots of post-war and contemporary photographs, following on October 5 with two separately catalogued sessions that add up to 200-plus lots spanning the earliest days of photography to major names from across the 20th century.

Early daguerreotypes are a strong feature, starting with a collection formed over a 40-year period by Dr Stanley Burns, a name now synonymous with this early form of photography. Burns’ 53 lots include a rich variety of mostly American scenes from everyday life, professional portraits and special occasions.
