Michael Kenna Northern England - Director's Picks

My picks which represent good investments
December 21, 2021

One of the great pleasures of hosting a photography exhibition is the excitement of seeing NEW work hung and being able to sit amongst them in the gallery space. I always love to pick out one or two particularly strong works when an artist releases new prints at the start of their limited edition run, in particular prints which represent good investments for new collectors as they are likely to sell through the edition quickly. 

 
Like most collectable art photographers, Michael Kenna keeps his print prices quite modest for the first 5 prints in every edition of 25 to encourage interest and give loyal collectors the opportunity to acquire early before the prices rise up towards £8,000 for the last print. These are my top picks for those looking to invest shrewdly in Michael Kenna’s new collection Northern England 1983-1986.
