Our next sale of photographs will be held on 15th September 2022 as part of our Fine Antiques and Works of Art auction. We also always have a selection of very affordable photographs in our regular Collectors sales (next is 11th August 2022)
Flints photograph auctions cover photography from the earliest techniques through to collectable late 20th century images.
20th Century subjects include modernist and contemporary art photography, fashion photography, documentary photographs and photojournalism. Past sales have achieved excellent prices for vintage photographs by Cecil Beaton, Ruth Bernhard, John Bulmer, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Edward S Curtis, Lucinda Douglas-Menzies, Gillian Edelstein, Philippe Halsman, Bert Hardy, Germaine Krull, John Minihan, José Ortiz Echagüe, Gordon Parkes, Steve Pyke, Ken Regan, George Roger, Jan Saudek, Lord Snowdon, Graham Smith and many others.
