Where Have All the Photographers Gone?

In the art fair business there are two categories that are always bursting with more applicants than the art fairs have room for. Those categories are jewelry and photography.

The good news for photographers is that the competition is lessening because five of the top photographers in the business have retired from the art fairs. The bad news is for the customers who passed on adding this work to their collections. A listing below with some web sites to help you out:

  1. Jill Bedford – known for her ethereal flower images is now doing native landscaping, horticultural work for the Nature Conservancy and studying massage
  2. Rick (Gordon) Bruno – co owner of the Lexington (VA) Art Gallery of Contemporary Photography, doing new work
  3. Bill Coleman – popular photographer of the Amish, no longer doing art fairs but maintains an active web business
  4. Norm Darwish– retired from photography but maintains a website of older images
  5. Lenny Lyons-Bruno – co owner of the Lexington (VA) Art Gallery of Contemporary Photography, painting as well as photography.
