Auction Preview: Under the Influence, April 13, 2015 @Phillips London

There are a few photographs buried in Phillips’ upcoming Under the Influence sale in London next week, but with no works in the highest estimate tier, it’s clearly a sale aimed at contemporary collectors searching for lower priced material. Overall, there are a total of 37 lots of photography available in the sale, with a Total High Estimate for photography of £239000.

Here’s the statistical breakdown:
