About Antiqphoto


For the last 25 years we have been buying and selling original, large format, 19th century photographs. Our emphasis has been on ethnographic images from Japan, China, the Indian sub-continent and the Pacific Rim, and topographical emphasis on the same countries, with the addition to North & South America.

For us, the most important thing is the image, not who took the photograph. If we know who the photographer was, then that is a bonus.  Our general rule is to only buy photographs that we personally like and can live with for a lifetime. We travel extensively in the quest to find great images and welcome inquiries by email to antiqphoto@gmail.com.

Our clients include major museums, universities and collectors from around the world. We hope you enjoy our new website and invite you to contact us with specific inquiries.
