The wilderness of Africa captured by the lens of Peter Beard cannot be admired enough. His work demonstrates how the beauty of a continent and its wilderness is diminishing due to industrialization. Such emotive works are being offered at Photographs Signature auction hosted by Heritage Auctions. One can find the Gardeners of Eden by the contemporary American photographer, Peter Beard, at the highest estimated value of $70,000.
The auction presents the diversity of items like no other, with photographs by Thomas Ruff, Lillian Bassman, and Alfred Eisenstaedt, to name a few. Thomas Ruff experiments his techniques with ambiguous themes. From digital exposures to computer-generated imagery, the artist uses his skills in such a way that widens the possibility of photography. Alongside his work of whimsy is a photograph by Lillian Bassman. Her images were highly sought after by fashion editors of the 1940s and 50s as they reflect a careful manipulation between dark and light.
