Christies, NYC

When Photography collector Gert Elfering placed a selection of iconic works with Christie’s for auction in 2008, Head of Photography Philippe Garner requested our assistance with presenting the works for the NYC sale. The incredible work included images by Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Norman Parkinson, Irving Penn and Herb Ritts. We took a consultative approach to the project, specifying archival museum standard materials for their presentation, along with high spec custom designed hand finished frames. Our consultant spent a week in Miami where the images were stored and sent designs and specifications back to London for production. Once completed the frames were crated and despatched to New York where we liaised with an art handling company to mount and fit the work which had been sent from Miami.
