Note: Most of these image show neither the quality nor the final cropping, as
they were all scanned too tight compared to the originals quite a few years back.
If you have any interest, ask us and we will e-mail you the image properly cropped/printed.

Note:
These were 25 sponsors of this series, with 35 images to choose from.
thus are sponsored,  thus very limited, thus higher in price.

Traditionally Dressed Woman Musician,
Bamboo Park, Shanghai, China, 1987

Sponsored by Steven Roski. (good scan)

She was a musician in a bamboo forest park and played some sort of sitar instrument with a few other folks dressed in traditional garb. She had a certain look that grabbed me, but refused to pose. I had my interpreter tell her I'd give her a Polaroid and she then agreed to. I did not pose her, it was a natural pose she took, which looked as if she were about the play the bamboo. One of Valerie's favorites from this series.

Exterior, Stone Tablet Writing Museum, Xian, 1987.

Some of the China images were not chosen by the sponsors, like the one directly above, as we always have more images to chose from than we have sponsors.  So if you would like to get one let us know.  They are about 10% of the price, as they are not in a limited edition.

 

 

Un-sponsored image, thus unlimited, and also available in a variety of sizes.

Printed on archival paper.

11"x14" unframed .........$750
16"x20" unframed ......$2,250
24"x30" unframed ...... ..$3,250
30"x40" unframed .........$7,500
40"x50" unframed ........$15,000

Prices on originals of this series are listed below,
but due to limited edition rarity of this series the prices are much higher than standard, newer, and less limited Seewald art.

There are 25 images in this series, so many more to view, just ask.

 

About the prices on the 1987
sponsored China originals.

Note:  All of the above images, except the two 'new' ones directly above, are from Seewald's second 'sponsored' series, created back in 1987 and released in 1988.  Back then, 16x20's (40x51cm) were the only size Seewald made available, in editions of only (10)  each. 

THUS, THESE IMAGES, editions wise, ARE VERY, VERY RARE.
When these sell out Michael will destroy the negative!!! 

     That is the reason the price increases with each sale.

Many years ago, the 25 sponsors of these images invested, sight un-seen, at $350 per 16"x20".  Now, all of them are $20,000 minimum in value.  Some of them (2) are up to $100,000 in value, due to sales!!  Seewald allows only 8 sponsors to pre-purchase images 'sight-unseen' these days!  Prices for sponsoring increase every couple of years.  To sponsor your own, like over 350 other collectors have now done, see: Sponsor Program, see: Pricing History)
 

______________________________

Pricing schedule
 as of January 2012

Note: this schedule has been modified many times,
increasing dramatically over the decades,
and will probably continue to do so!

Again, all of which are only available in the 16"x20" (40x51cm) size.

#1 - Sponsors image.
#2 - Seewald keeps this one.
#3 - Museums get this one.
#4 - $20,000 (The first available image to the public.)
#5 - $30,000  (Next available image to the public, etc.)
#6 - $40,000     "           "
#7 - $50,000     "           "
#8 - $100,000     "           "
#9 - $500,000     "           "
#10  $1,000,000     "           " and then negative destroyed.

We still have most at the $20K price, but as each one sells, as you see, it increases! Some have reached the $30K, $40K, $50K and two even the $100K prices now (Pianoman and The Three Graces).

______________________________

Seewald's original
1987 pricing schedule:

Believe it or not, the following was the original price list schedule.  It has been revised a few times as Michael has completed more trips, won more major international awards and watched photographic art come into 'it's own' over the past three decades. 

#1 - Sponsors image.
#2 - Seewald keeps this one.
#3 - Museums get this one.
#4 - $600 (opening night release price).
#5 - $700
#6 - $800
#7 - $900
#8 - $1,000
#9 - $1,250
#10 -$1,500 and then negative destroyed.

Michael was quoted, "Everyone I told my idea too GASPED of my proposed planned price increase chart  when they first saw this set released back in 1988.  Sponsor price was $350 (and they bought sight un-seen, as the program requires).   All 25 sponsors waited one year from the trip to see and choose their favorite from 35 or so available images."
