A veces he comentado que, para conocer como marcha el mercado del arte, es necesario, imprescindible salir de  nuestra visión española. Nosotrso , pienso, estamos "fuera de mercado" cuando hablamos de nivel mundial.
Pues bien tambén es bueno leer noticias para ver novedades curiosas de "hacia donde puede encaminarse el mercado"

PHILLIPS LONDON BROUGHT IN A SALES TOTAL OF £2,244,875, WHICH TOPPED ALL OTHER AUCTION HOUSE RESULTS IN LONDON IN MAY

By Michael Diemar

In 2016, Phillips introduced a new strategy for their London spring photography auction, with two special sections called "Ultimate".  The first section consisted of works that had been printed in editions of 1, the result of collaborations between photographers and Phillips.  The second consisted of sourcing existing unique works or the only one available on market, the last in an edition or an artist's proof.
A couple of days before the auction Yuka Yamaji, co-head of the European department, told me that the first part of the strategy had been developed to entice contemporary art collectors who will buy unique works only and simply don't feel comfortable with even small editions.
I have heard a range of opinions about this method, an auction house creating scarcity, from "extremely aggressive" to "really quite clever" though many in the latter camp have commented to me that the choice of photographers and images could have been much more interesting.


Podemos decir una cosa ante este nuevo aspecto, relativamente hablando, del mercado de la fotografía de autor.
  • La fotografía, en cierto modo, sueña ser pintura : ser obra única.
o  podemos también pensar que se está abriendo una nueva puerta en el mercado fotográfico
  • La venta habitual, en el futuro, de copía únicas por parte de los fotógrafos de primera fila.
Cosa, en principio, bastante posible ya que las cámaras digitales permiten tirar un gran número de fotos.

I have sometimes commented that, in order to know how the art market is going, it is necessary, essential to get out of our Spanish vision. We, I think, are "out of the market" when we speak of the world level.
Well it is also good to read news to see curious news of "where the market can go"

We can say one thing before this new aspect, relatively speaking, of the market of the photography of author.

    
Photography, in a way, dreams to be painting: to be a unique work.
Or we can also think that a new door is opening in the photographic market

    
The sale, in the future, of unique copy by the photographers.
Thing, in principle, quite possible since the digital cameras allow to shoot a great number of photos.
