Afghan Girl and Photographs From the Collection of Peter C. Bunnell Highlight Photography Sale at PhillipsOct 12, 2022 10:00 EDT
Photography is not just another visual source, recording a place or a moment. It is a powerful emotive tool that can delve into its audience’s minds. Good photographs are timeless and create a sense of belonging. One such image featured in the upcoming Photography sale at Phillips is a 1984 portrait of Sharbat Gula. ‘Afghan Girl’ by American photojournalist Steve McCurry shows a young green-eyed Afghan refugee in Pakistan during the Soviet-Afghan War.
George Robinson Fardon’s seven-panel panorama of San Francisco in the year 1855 is another significant lot. The black-and-white images of buildings, businesses, and residences capture the city’s industrial expansion and booming energy. ‘Water Towers’ by Bernd and Hilla Becher, works from the collection of renowned curator Peter C. Bunnell, and Walker Evans’ famous Subway Portrait, along with his Penny Picture Display, Savannah, are other lots of interest. Visit Phillips to view the complete catalog and register to bid.
