I recently received a link to download the photos taken of my recent wire cloth sculpture titled, "January 21, 2017." It is exciting to see professional photos of my finished work, but most importantly it is necessary to have professional photos for publications, websites, marketing, submitting to exhibitions and for documentation. I feel that when art historians of the future look at the work of artists living and working in this day and age, their ability to understand the processes, materials, concepts and inspirations will be as important as the actual work. The documentation of these items will greatly add to the artistic, social and monetary value of art. It is just a hunch I have from my years of experience in the business world. I hope I am right and that it does add to the value because it takes a lot of time, not to mention money, to have it done professionally.
I love this shot taken by Will Michels: http://madebywill.com/
