Investing in Art Photography: What to Keep in Mind

Size of the edition
An artwork is precious because it’s unique. A photographic print is a copy and, provided the original negative or digital file still exists, lots more copies can be made in future. This partly explains why the art world has in the past been wary of photography. Editioning gets around this by setting a limit how many prints will ever be produced of a particular photograph. Editions are designed to cultivate rarity so, as a rule, avoid big ones. With two hundred versions of your print out there in the world, you’re unlikely to see its worth increase astronomically. The number of the print’s place in the edition — from 1/10 to 10/10, say — will normally be included on it, along with the artist’s signature. Further up the edition, fewer prints are available, which can push up the price.
