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.
