Welcome to photo-eye Auctions!




This Week's Auctions

This week's auctions skew toward the contemporary. We're thrilled to have a SIGNED copy of one of our very favorite books of the last ten years, Lieko Shiga's Canary, a series whose gorgeous tableaux vacillates between dreams and reality. Writing about The Stage by Donigan Cumming, Parr and Badger say that "the only photographer who can be compared to him in terms of making transgressive portraits is Diane Arbus. Each individual portrait represents a little psychodrama played out on the stage that is the picture frame."

Also on the block:
  • Josef Sudek: Mostecko/Humboldtka
  • The rare Czech Modernist children's book, Svezte se s námi (Take a Ride with Us) with photomontages by Josef Hons & Valentová Zdenka
  • A sweet copy of the Lee Friedlander classic, The American Monument



  • Now accepting consignments. For inquiries as well as discreet, expert advise on building or selling your collection, be sure to contact Eric Miles Director of Rare Books & Online Auctions.

    Don't forget, all books shown in the Post-Auction Sale Inventory are available at the low opening bid prices shown! Invitation to Consign: Do you have photobooks or prints you'd like to sell? Read our F.A.Q.s.
