Collecting 19th Century photographs part 1

As a collector and dealer I specialize in original large format 19th century photographs with an emphasis on ethnographic images from Japan, China, Indian sub-continent and the Pacific Rim. My topographical emphasis is on the same countries with the addition to North & South America. To me the most important thing is the image, not who the photographer was. If it is known who the photographer was then that is a bonus. My niche in the photographic market for 19th century images is for the ethnographic studies and many have been acquired by museums and colectors around the world.

My general rule is to only buy photographs I personally like and can live with for a lifetime. I travel extensively in my quest to find great images and I welcome inquiries by email to antiqphoto@gmail.com.

Visit my website with more than 3000 images:

Thinking of selling one item or an entire collection? I am happy to give you an idea of the value of your photographs before you offer them on the market.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s
    equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I found this during my hunt
    for something relating to this.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know sso much
    about this, like you wrote the bok in it oor something. I
    think that you can do with a few pics tto drive the message home a little bit,
    but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. A fantastic read.I will certainly be back.

    This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.

    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
