Also Sotheby's Auctions 19th and 20th Century Photographs on October 6 in New York

In case you are in the market for some photography it probably makes sense to go to New York on October 6, 2010. Both at Christie's as well as at Sotheby's a large number of very nice pictures will be auctioned. I wonder why they organize these two events on the same day at two different places in New York. They sell pictures of the same photographers. As a Dutchman I notice one difference, they sell at Sotheby's pictures by the Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf, like e.g. Hope 5 (see the link to an earlier blog below).
