The photograph is the new work of art and a Chelsea gallery has plans to make great pics available at affordable prices in a special two-day event at the end of this month.
The most expensive snap ever cost a New York buyer a cool £2.8millon two years ago. But thanks to Splinter, a concept from the Michael Hoppen Gallery in Jubilee Place, the event will offer a wide range of 19th, 20th and 21st century photography. With many pieces priced at a few hundred pounds and all under £1,000, it's the perfect environment for new and experienced collectors to browse through hundreds of photographs to add or start a collection, or simply find the perfect present.
MACK, publishers of some of the most respected contemporary photography books today will also take part as will the Royal College of Art students.
