Welcome to photo-eye Auctions!
This Week's Auctions
After Walker Evans' death in 1975, the executor of his estate, John T. Hill, along with Evans colleague Norman Ives, set about editing some 20,000 negatives taken over forty-five years to produce the monograph, First & Last. Before it was released in 1978 — forty years after the publication of his epochal American Photographs — numerous prints were produced in the preparation of a maquette. We are thrilled to offer a selection of five prints — three of them included in American Photographs. All were printed by Amos Chan and have the 'imprimatur' of Mr. Hill on the verso. Also on the block:
Henri Cartier-Bresson's impossibly rare, little-known 1948 volume, Beautiful Jaipur (in Scarce Dust Jacket)
Peter Beard: The End of the Game, First Ed., Inscribed Copy with Hand-Written Letter
The searing documentary by Raymond Depardon, San Clemente
