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:

Preview Statistics
Total Low Lots (high estimate up to and including £5000) 18
Total Low Estimate (sum of high estimates of low lots) £67000
Total Mid Lots (high estimate between £5000 and £25000) 19
Total Mid Estimate £172000
Total High Lots (high estimate above £25000) 0
