Never before seen photos of three famous artists have gone up for sale at Bonham’s auction house. In total, 16 candid photos of the artist Georgia O’Keefe, photographer Alfred Stieglitz and writer William Faulker are expecting to bring in $20,000 - $30,000 if sold as a set.

The photographer behind these gelatin silver contact prints is unknown but considering where and when they were taken it’s likely they were good friends with the trio. Gelatin silver print is a monochrome imaging process that has been around since the 1970s. It works due to the light sensitivity of silver halides and can be used for contact printing and enlarging.
