The Collector's Guide to Emerging Art Photography


One of my photographs - Car Skeletons, Highway 163, Arizona, 2008 - was included in The Collector's Guide to Emerging Art Photography, scheduled to be released on March 3, 2009. The Collector's Guide, published by Humble Arts Foundation, features the work of 163 photographers curated by Alana Celii, Jon Feinstein and Grant Willig with an introduction by art collector and enthusiast, Ruben Natal-San Miguel.

The Collector's Guide is an invite only, unique 180–page source book distributed to collectors, art dealers, gallery directors, photo editors, museum professionals, and independent curators. Published biennially, The Collector's Guide aims to further Humble's mission by bridging the gap between ambitious early-career photographers and often-unapproachable photography professionals and art institutions.

Ideally, the 163 photographers featured in this publication will move on to find their work in private collections, represented by reputable galleries and included in group exhibitions. The Collector's Guide will also serve as a resource for photo editors, helping to attract assignments to featured photographers.

The Collector's Guide is not a traditional consumer-based art photography book. Instead, this source book is a complimentary guide for collectors and photography industry professionals
.

Complimentary copies are available for collectors, art dealers, gallery directors, photo editors, museum professionals, independent curators and press.

To pre-order a complimentary copy, please send an email to: tcgeap@hafny.org

Please include your full name, company, title, address, city, state and zip in the email.

A limited edition of 100 copies is also available for pre-order to the general public. The book retails for $49. 95 plus tax and shipping and can be purchased through the Humble Arts Foundation: The Collector's Guide to Emerging Art Photography
