Collector's Prints from LIFE Magazine, Page Three

People are always asking what are good investments in photography. I often point out that photographs by the great LIFE Magazine photographers have increased dramatically over the years. In the last couple of years, as more and more collectors have bought them, they have really gone up. For example, Andreas Feininger's Route 66 went from $10,000.00 in a show here a little over two years ago to a price over $20,000.00 higher.

Below I have presented pieces that are mostly under $10,000.00, with the majority being under $5,000.00. Many of these images are quite well known and, I feel, underpriced. Most of the works here are by Alfred Eisenstaedt, one of the most popular LIFE photographers. All of these prints are in superb condition, printed in the LIFE photo lab and are signed by the photographer. For many of the images below, there are very few prints left, and these prices are subject to rapid change. If you see one or some you like, please email us or phone us (877-868-5462) for the current price. Due to fluctuations, LIFE has asked us not to post prices.
