As the AIPAD 2012 Photography Show swings into full gear today at the Park Avenue Armory in NYC, La Lettre de la Photographie chats with Jed Root about his own photography collection and collecting approach.
LL: What do you consider your first real success in collecting? Your biggest failure? What is your prize? JR: Well I guess those first few Penn & Avedon photos were pretty big successes. I paid between $2,000.00 to $4,500.00 for each of them. Now they are probably worth about twenty times that. I still have them, I have never sold a single photo. I don’t think of any of them as failures, since I only buy things that I really like & would want to have in my house. I don’t think there’s one piece that I could choose as “THE prize”.
