Auctions at three major New York houses last week are headlining some of
photography's stellar names—as well as a collection that once decorated the walls of a giant trucking company. Photos are proving increasingly
attractive to collectors, Christie's Ms. Paterson says. "As the price of paintings have become incredibly expensive," she added, "a lot of people have moved into photography as something that's affordable and still
decorative. The auctions, at Sotheby's, Christie's and Phillips de Pury & Co., feature landmark works from Robert Frank, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon,Man Ray, Ansel Adams and Robert Mapplethorpe. SOURCE: Stan Sesser. Wall
