They were not the pretty pictures of "willows by the river or beeches in the fog" that he was after,
but rather the landscapes of a world violently "disturbed" by man.
At no time during the relatively recent but fast developing market for fine art photography have there been greater resources or opportunities for collectors to acquire photographic works. Collectors with a specific focus, objective or goal plan often find it much easier to establish a fruitful working relationship with a photo dealer. By acquiring pieces directly from the Bock-Schroeder Foundation, collectors create a meaningful connection to their collection.
Every collector, no matter the level of experience or financial means, is looking for fair value in the work they purchase. When buying from private dealers who don’t have the overhead of maintaining a gallery space or a large inventory, there can be financial advantages as well. In all cases, knowing the relative current market price for a particular work by a particular artist, or the going price for work in a particular style or genre, can help collectors negotiate the best price, or at least help to reassure them they are buying work at a fair value. By staying with quality, you build credibility in your collection.
