About this Curation

Ease your way into collecting photographic art with this approachable selection of images below $500. These works are the perfect launching point for building the photography collection of your dreams.

As with all art, there's no right or wrong when collecting photography. Photographs themselves are a slice of time, a representation of reality which is defined as much by what is excluded as what is included. Browse a range of photographic styles, from abstract to landscape to documentary in this collection featuring up and coming artists, as well as affordable works from more established photographers.

The voice behind Bluethumb's social media and blogs, she is a core part of the curatorial team and leads the weekly newsletters.

Melbourne born and bred, her days at Bluethumb are filled with many coffees, cuddles from the resident canine companions and of course, spending more $ than is sensible on stunning art.
