But the fact was he was a great image-maker and now his works fetch high prices at the world's biggest photography auctions. Artvisory is delighted to stage a single-vendor auction of 13 signed original classic photographs, some of which hail from the family collection of another Australian great, photographer Wolfgang Sievers.
