Flints Photograph department holds Fine Auctions twice per year. These sales are very well publicised, promoted in relevant publications, social media and at fairs. The catalogues produced for our fine sales are in full colour and are fully illustrated. They are sent to collectors, institutes and museums across the world. The catalogues produced by Flints are valuable reference works used and trusted by leading collectors and institutes.
Keith Petts heads the photograph department, bringing to bear 35 years experience in the art and antiques trade. Flints sales feature photographs from all periods from the earliest techniques through to collectable late 20th century images. Our Fine Photograph auctions feature:
- Salt Prints, Albumen, Platinum and Silver Gelatin prints
- Stereo views
- Single images, Collections, Albums and Photobooks
There is a strong market for 19th Century photographs with interesting subject matter; exotic travel and documentary photographs, significant portraits, early erotic images, and the later Victorian pictorialism with landscape and genre subjects. Moving forwards, 20th Century subjects include modernist art photography, photojournalism and fashion photography.
