“I’m attracted to images of beauty and style, and images that confirm the joy of being alive” tells Peter Fetterman in conversation with Laura Paterson.
In the upcoming Peter Fetterman curated photography auction “A Wonderful Life” you will find an incredible collection of great pictures inviting you to linger. Long forgotten moments held in order to dream back to times past and which will enchant a smile around your lips. “When I see an image like Paul Caponigro’s Two Pears, or Weegee’s Harlem Sunday, or Thurston Hopkin’s La Dolce Vita, I just feel better.” he continues.” We can only agree.
The auction will offer iconic images of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Barack Obama, John Lennon, the Queen, Twiggy, Paul McCartney, Audrey Hepburn and many more available. Coupled with this are wonderful fashion editorial imagery, city skylines and much more from iconic photographers such as Louis Stettner, Sabine Weiss, Jerry Schatzberg, Berenice Abbott, Norman Parkinson, Arthur Elgort and many more.
The auction is taking place at Bonhams on December 17th, both in person in New York and online globally.
