Isa Lorenzo on Collecting Photography

On Collecting Photography
Talk by Isa Lorenzo
August 30, Saturday

Photography is one of the most accessible art forms. What you see is what you get. Or is it?

The collection of photography as a contemporary fine art is steadily becoming more important to serious collectors both here and abroad. This talk answers why. And why the thrill of collecting art is all the more intense with the contemporary. The work of Noelle Katigbak Tan, currently in its last editions at Silverlens this month, after 6 years of being shown, is a satisfying sample of deep collecting.

A slideshow of important internationally-collected art will be presented, vis a vis Philippine photography. It also answers the whos and hows of photography collection--the artists, print processes, editions, pricing, and provenance.

This visual presentation is ideal for individuals with established collections, young collectors, artists, architects, designers, and the curious.

Isa Lorenzo is the creative director of Silverlens Gallery which deals with photography, and the soon to open SLab (Silverlens Lab), which will be showing the rest of the contemporary arts. Lorenzo, herself an artist who works with photography, spends her downtime looking at art and carefully building a collection of the contemporary.
