Hidden gems in family photos
Important photographs regularly fetch five figure sums at auction, but images of much humbler provenance can give great pleasure to a collector – and have market value as an investment for the future.
According to Sotheby’s photography specialist Brandei Estes, it is worth taking stock of any images in your possession.
“Because the market is so young and moving so quickly, sometimes people think, “Oh, no one will be interested in that,” but there are gems out there, and because it’s still such a niche market, there could be someone who would love to have something you found in grandma’s attic,” she said.
