October 28, 2012 Dear Friends, We are pleased to present SF Camerawork’s 2012 Benefit Auction. As you know, the proceeds of this annual fundraiser help us to fulfill our mission which is to encourage and support emerging artists to explore new directions in the photographic arts. We are extraordinarily fortunate that this endeavor has been supported by a dedicated and generous group of individuals. We extend special thanks to Tony Page of Page Imageworks; Chris Barnett and Reinhold Gras of Sterling Art Services; Seth Dickerman of Dickerman Prints; Mark Hanson of Hanson Digital; and Gawain Weaver of Gawain Weaver Art Conservation. We also acknowledge the strong leadership of our 2012 Auction Chair, Michelle Blakeley, as well as the contributions of Jeanne Friscia, Ellen Shershow Peña, and Cory Scozzari. Finally, we extend our deepest gratitude to the community of artists, collectors, gallery owners, and private dealers who have contributed a fantastic selection of prints to this year’s Auction. Without a doubt, the Camerawork Auction consistently represents a wide selection of the best contemporary and vintage photographs available. This year, in an effort to be more environmentally conscious and economically pragmatic, we will not print Auction catalogs. However, the catalog can be ordered, print-on-demand, from Magcloud. On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff, thank you for your continued interest and support of our programs. We hope to see you at the Auction! Best wishes,

Chuck Mobley Director

INFORMATION FOR BUYERS The catalog description includes an estimated price range for each lot. These estimates are the approximate prices we expect to be realized. They are not definitive. The bidding begins below the listed prices. The Auctioneer will use the following increments: $200-499 $50 increments $500-999 $75 increments $1,000-1,999 $100 increments $2,000-5,000+ Auctioneer’s Discretion • The name listed at the top of each lot indicates the artist who, in our best judgment, is the author of the work. (No unqualified statement regarding authorship is made or intended.) • When one date is given it refers to the date of the negative from which the print was made in the same year or soon thereafter. Some prints show two dates, the first referring to the negative and the second to the print. When the print date is unknown, but assumed later, “printed later” appears following the negative date. • Measurements usually refer to image size (sometimes paper size) and are given in inches. The height appears first, followed by the width. • All lots with estimated retail values marked by [ ] are offered for sale subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price below which such lot will not be sold. • Unless otherwise indicated the print is donated by the artist. • Please note that all statements and terms in this catalog are subject to the provisions of the Conditions of Sale and San Francisco Camerawork makes no warranties or representations with any lot. CONDITIONS OF SALE 1. The sale will begin at 1 pm on Saturday, December 1, 2012 and will continue until all available prints have been presented for bidding.

Likewise, an erratum will be produced, if needed, and made available at the Auction. 2. Any property may be withdrawn by SF Camerawork at any time before the actual sale without any liability therefor. 3. During the day of the sale, bids will be accepted from registered and absentee bidders. Bid numbers for registered bidders will be available throughout the day at the registration desk. 4. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid and to advance the bidding at his/her absolute discretion and, in the event of any dispute between bidders, to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the article in dispute. Should there be any dispute after the sale, the auctioneer’s record of final sale shall be conclusive. 5. Absentee bids will be accepted by fax, mail, telephone, email, in person, or via an online bidding process on the SF Camerawork website.

We make no representation as to the condition of any lot sold and no reference to imperfection is made in the catalog description. All lots are sold “AS IS.” Prospective purchasers should inspect the property before bidding to determine its condition. 7. Final bids for each item will be recorded by bid number and the print held at the cashier’s desk until called for by the buyer. All purchases must be paid in full on the day of the auction. 8. Payment may be cash, personal check (with proper identification), or credit card. California state sales tax of 8.5 % will be added to all purchases in state.

If packing and handling of purchased lots is done by SF Camerawork, it is done at the entire risk of the purchaser.
