Alchemical:  The rise of the fine art photography market and what we’re seeing today (a.k.a. “Follow the Money”)

In this beautifully illustrated presentation, “Alchemical:  The rise of the fine art photography market and what we’re seeing today,” certified photography appraiser and photo historian Jennifer Stoots will provide a succinct review of the evolution of the fine art photography market in the United States. In the course of her talk, Stoots will:  Highlight influential people, galleries and institutions in the U.S. that championed photography in the early 20th century; cover key collectors and factors that fostered exponential growth from the 1970s to the end of the 1990s; analyze the top selling photographers and photographs; and finish with commentary centered around international photo fairs and the internet’s impact on the photography market in the last two decades.
