Welcome to photo-eye Auctions!




This Week's Auctions

In a 2010 Guardian article, photography critic Sean O'Hagan asked, 'Masahisa Fukase's Ravens: the best photobook of the past 25 years'?. "There is a dark, brooding beauty in these images that is singular and affecting," he writes. "In The Solitude of Ravens, Fukase found a subject that reflected his darkening vision, and he pursued it with obsessive relentlessness."
