Originals vs. Reproductions.
Originals are actual photographs printed from the negative in the
darkroom on very stable paper with archival properties and then
processed through photographic chemicals. The process is
painstaking in time and materials. A few are made before it is
just right. (Manipulated by hand, darkening and lightening
certain areas to reflect the artists intentions). All are
destroyed except the perfect ones. Reproductions on
the other hand are massed produced on printing presses nor are they
archival (subject to fading in time 5-10 years depending on light). The plus is that you could not tell the difference,
visually, but you would be able to tell it after some time as the
reproductions won't last color wise much more than a couple of
decades, nor will their value increase as rapidly as the originals
Concerning Seewald's originals
In today's art market, an edition of 300
or less (by an accomplished artist) is considered very rare. As you may have
limits, when he releases it limited, to even less! (Most artist's don't limit, and if so, a
thousand is not uncommon...per size!)
Therefore, Seewald's increase in price, and therefore value, with
each sale. Some by a hundred dollars and some by a thousand, depending on size and
limit! (Earlier years they were even more limited, thus the much higher
prices on those images- See Iceland '87 or China '88.)
So please ask for the current price, A.S.A.P. if you're interested. Also, every
few years ALL
images increase 'across the board', sold or un-sold, so don't hesitate to invest in your Seewald
The question is not if they will increase in value,
but when and by how much?
Note: As of 2008,
all Seewald originals are now printed
with the Epson printer on archival
paper! Estimated 200 + years
