52 Editions



52 Editions features one photo per week at 8x10" in a limited, very affordable edition. I'm proud to have my photo "The Walk" featured this week.

This is a great way to get an affordable piece at just $45 unframed so please head over and take a look! Be sure to check out the catalogue too and join their mailing list to be notified of future editions.

Thanks, Arnaud!

From the site:

52 Editions is the anti-gallery

Our weekly goal: to demolish the misconception that collecting great photography is a privilege solely for the hoity-toity. We're knocking it off its pedestal, and bringing it live, to your walls.

As the cliche goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And the eye behind 52 editions, Arnaud Gregori, is no ordinary beholder. A curator and all around international man of the photo world, Gregori is also a self-proclaimed French snob. Translation: he has the exquisite taste and the chops to back that up, having spent hardcore time working with pro-photogs. Seriously, trust a frere.

Here's how it works: each week, 52 Editions features a different photograph for $45, published in a limited edition of 275. This postmodern approach to art dealing is more about spreading shutterbug love than making a buck. It's contagious, let's start a pandemic...

The photographs we feature are selected on a case-by-case basis. So, if Gregori thinks its good, it doesn't matter whether the artist is an amateur or professional, famous or anonymous. It doesn't matter to our prices either.

Making each photo inexpensive means if you love it, you can buy it. If we have it our way (and artsy-fartsy elitists be damned, we mean to!) a piece of art you've purchased isn't always a bank-breaking, life-long commitment. It's a gift to yourself, or a gift for another.

We hope to continuously expose you (you didn't really think you'd get through this without a darkroom pun, did you?!) to great works of art that will make your day as much as they make ours.
