Fine art photography is now a major global player when it comes to galleries, auctions, art fairs and the general commercial marketplace.

This 2-hour seminar will give participants an introduction into the mechanics of the fine art photography marketplace, along with insider tips, from the perspective of a powerhouse collector.  

Join us as we go inside the collector’s mind! Serving as the Chair of the Acquisition Committee at both the Harvard Art Museums and the International Center of Photography, Alice Sachs Zimet began collecting photography in 1985 and has amassed a collection of over 300 museum-quality images.

Learn how her journey began, the impetus to buy her first piece, and what goes into the collector’s decision-making process.

Collectors will gain insight into the world of fine art photography from a pioneer collector. Photographers will better understand the market and the questions collectors might ask in order to advance their own personal practice and get collected.  

This presentation will be the first in a series of seminars and workshops, offered by the Griffin Museum,  dedicated to the commercial fine art marketplace.
