Recession Proof

Think the near mythical: Mapplethorpe, Newton, Avedon, Brassai, Robert Frank, Jean Loup Sieff, Guy Bourdin, William Klein along with contemporary photography gods Nan Goldin, David LaChapelle, Steven Klein, Michel Comte, Nick Knight, Annie Leibovitz, Peter Lindbergh, Mark Seliger, Rankin, Richard Prince, Paolo Roversi, Sante D’Orazio, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Philip Lorca di Corcia, Mario Testino, Sebastiao Selgado, Peter Beard, Araki, Sally Mann and Anton Corbijin (in no particular order). All in one Phillips de Pury auction. Luscious prints, iconic photographs, a view of the 20th century. As expected though, no works from the legendary Meisel which makes his genius jigsaw that much more coveted. We want everything. Shop away.

Guy Bourdin for Pentax Calendar. 1980.

Is Steven Klein a fortuneteller? Here Angelina and Brad for W magazine in 2005, pre-current brood of 5.
