Auction Preview: Contemporary Art Evening and Day Sales, June 29 and 30, 2015 @Phillips London

After a very thin photography outing at its London Contemporary Art sales earlier this winter, Phillips has rebounded with the most photographic value on offer in this upcoming early summer season in London. Led by an Andreas Gursky stock exchange, it’s a tight grouping highlighted by multiple Gilbert & George and Cindy Sherman works. Overall, there are a total of 22 lots of photography available across the two sales, with a Total High Estimate for photography of £2822000.

Here’s the statistical breakdown:
