Over 125 nationally and regionally known photographers as well as numerous galleries, photography dealers, and collectors have contributed prints to The Photo Review Benefit Auction for 1998. One of the highlights of the auction is Richard Misrach’s large color print from his Salton Sea series (estimate $1,000-$1,500). Most of the limited edition prints in this series are sold out, making this highly prized by collectors. Other highlights include Jack Leigh's Midnight, Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, Georgia (estimate $500-$900), the image used on the cover of the best-selling book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil; John Weiss's riveting portrait of homerun slugger Mark McGwire (estimate $600-$1,000); W. Hammerschmidt’s mammoth albumen print, Dome of the Rock, ca. 1869 (estimate $200-$400); and William Wegman's 1997 color print, Pine Bender (estimate $400-$600).

Also, Barbara Crane, the late Bruce Cratsley, Lois Greenfield, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Mark Klett, Ray K. Metzker, Olivia Parker, Rosalind Solomon, Jock Sturges, George Tice, Philip Trager, and Jerry N. Uelsmann are among the more than 125 photographers who have donated work to The Photo Review’s Twelfth Benefit Auction, to be held this coming November 14 at the University of the Arts, Dorrance-Hamilton Building, in Philadelphia.

In addition to images by such contemporary photographers, the Auction will feature an impressive array of 19th- and early 20th-century artists, including J. Craig Annan, Eugène Atget, Baron Adolf de Meyer, Edward Steichen, Eva Watson-Schütze, and Clarence H. White.

Works to be auctioned will be available for preview at the University of the Arts, Dorrance-Hamilton Building, Broad and Pine Streets, Philadelphia, on Friday, November 13 from 11–5 PM, and on Saturday, November 14 from 11-6 PM. Bidders can register for the auction at those times.

The auction will be held on Saturday, November 14 at 7 PM, following the ninth annual Photo Review Award ceremony. Preceding the ceremony, there will be a special reception from 6 to 7 PM honoring this year’s award winner, The Perkins Center for the Arts. Tickets to the reception are $30, with an optional $100 patron ticket. There is no charge to attend the award ceremony or auction. Prices should range from $50 to $2,500.

The award ceremony and benefit auction will be held at the University of the Arts, Dorrance-Hamilton Building, Broad and Pine Streets in Philadelphia.
