Went to a new gallery this weekend. Loved the piece above. Stands about 6 feet tall. Arm was around my eye level.

Im reading the curious case of the 12 million $ shark. A recommended read for anyone interested in the high dealings of the contemporary art market. Eye openging to say the least.

Unfortunately missed out on Anselm Reyle's exhibition. Next in line are two parallel running Alberto Giacometti exhibitions. One focuses on his portraits (44 sculptures, 10 painints, 65 drawings). The other focuses on his surrealist works (120 sculptures, paintings, drawings and photos). I'm sure it'll be interesting.

Gentleman I have some questions, and I'd appreciate your help:

I'd like to start collecting photography, but I know nothing about buying; I'm particularly interested in vintage photographs and photography classics; where's a good place to buy such photographs? (I'm based in London, but travel to NYC.) And is it even possible to buy classics at prices that aren't astronomical? Are there such things as post facto reprints as with say woodcut prints by Matisse?

I don't really have a budget in mind, I was simply thinking about looking around at what's available.

Thanks in advance to anyone who answers.

Theodore Roosevelt on the Armory Exhibition, one of the defining moments of 20th century art, 1913
There is no reason why people should not call themselves Cubists, or Octagonists, or Parallelopipedonists, or Knights of the Isosceles Triangle, or Brothers of the Cosine, if they so desire; as expressing anything serious and permanent, one term is as fatuous as another. Take the picture which for some reason is called “A naked man going down stairs.” There is in my bath-room a really good Navajo rug which, on any proper interpretation of the Cubist theory, is a far more satisfactory and decorative picture. Now if, for some inscrutable reason, it suited somebody to call this rug a picture of, say, “A well-dressed man going up a ladder,” the name would fit the facts just about as well as in the case of the Cubist picture of the “Naked man going down stairs.” From the standpoint of terminology, each name would have whatever merit inheres in a rather cheap straining after effect; and from the standpoint of decorative value, of sincerity, and of artistic merit, the Navajo rug is infinitely ahead of the picture.
