As the year winds down and the holiday season approaches we have been reflecting and revisiting images that have stuck with us over the years. Because we are lucky enough to be immersed in photography every day, our list of favorites is naturally rather extensive and in an attempt to prune the list down so that every image gets the attention it deserves we are focusing on photographs that are $1000 or less – prints that could be a great gift for others OR for yourself!  As we mentioned earlier this year in our Collecting Guide, setting a limit, like a budget or a genre, is an excellent way to center in on purchasing the right piece.

If any of the images speak to you, please reach out to us, we would love to tell you more about the images and the artists.
