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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
