Auction Preview: New Now, April 13, 2016 @Phillips London

Phillips has one of its New Now mid-range contemporary art sales on the calendar for next week in London, and given it is scheduled opposite the opening of the AIPAD fair here in New York, the photography included is likely aimed at a different audience than the collectors who will descend on the Park Avenue Armory. For those willing to dig, an eclectic mix of off the beaten track material is on offer, with a few underappreciated contemporary names worth ferreting out. Overall, there are a total of 47 lots of photography available in the sale, with a Total High Estimate for photography of £461000.

Here’s the statistical breakdown:
