Auction Preview: New Now, December 8, 2016 @Phillips London

For those who haven’t closed up their collecting activities for the reminder of the year, Phillips has shoehorned one of its New Now mid-range contemporary art sales into usually slow December later this week. It’s a mixed bag of leftovers, but with a handful of notable contemporary names and up and comers buried amid the clutter. Overall, there are a total of 43 lots of photography available in the sale, with a Total High Estimate for photography of £355000.

Here’s the statistical breakdown:
