Thursday, September 26, 2013

Tomorrow, September 27th, Christie’s will present photos from famed photographer Norman Seeff in a two week-only auction entitled Photographs by Norman Seeff: The Lost Archive. Comprised of 50 vintage prints, the auction will feature some of the most recognizable images of the 20th century. Seeff’s subjects include influential names from the music and entertainment industries—from Whitney Houston and Blondie to Patti Smith, Cher and The Rolling Stones.

Vintage gelatin silver prints by Seeff are extremely rare and many presented in this exclusive sale are unique.  As authentic “work prints,” these objects were physically presented to artists and their agents for approval, becoming vehicles for the world’s perception of some of the greatest stars of our time.

Seeff’s photographs will be on public view from Friday, September 27 to Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at Christie’s New York, marking the first time that they have been available for public exhibition.
