The Telegraph reports on an auction to be held by a dealer of Wilson Bentley’s 19th Century photographs of snowflakes:
A four-day sale of his work begins on Thursday, with 26 of his images to be auctioned at the American Antiques Show. Ten of the images are of snowflakes, which he called snow crystals, and are priced at $4,800 (£3,000) each. The others show winter scenes. They are being offered by Carl Hammer, whose Chicago art gallery is showing 20 other Bentley photographs.
“They’re remarkably beautiful,” said Mr Hammer. “There are imperfections on the outer edges of the image itself and on the paper, but the images themselves are quite spectacular.”
