Dance Photography For Sale on 1stDibs

Surely you’ll find the exact piece of dance photography you’re seeking on 1stDibs — we’ve got a vast assortment for sale. You can easily find an example made in the Contemporary style, while we also have 264 Contemporary versions to choose from as well. Finding the perfect item from our selection of dance photography may mean sifting through those created during different time periods — you can find an early version that dates to the 20th Century and a newer variation that were made as recently as the 21st Century. If you’re looking to add a choice in our collection of dance photography to create new energy in an otherwise neutral space in your home, you can find a work on 1stDibs that features elements of black, gray, beige, blue and more. An object in our assortment of dance photography from Jack Mitchell, Stefanie Schneider, Kirsten Thys van den Audenaerde, Olivo Barbieri and Tyler Shields — each of whom created distinctive versions of this kind of work — is worth considering. Artworks like these of any era or style can make for thoughtful decor in any space, but a selection from our variety of those made in silver gelatin print, pigment print and archival pigment print can add an especially memorable touch. A large option in this array of dance photography can prove too dominant for some spaces — a smaller piece of dance photography, measuring 3.75 high and 0.1 wide, may better suit your needs.

How Much is a Dance Photography?

The average selling price for a piece of dance photography we offer is $1,750, while they’re typically $100 on the low end and $95,000 for the highest priced.

Finding the Right Photography for You

Find a broad range of fine photography on 1stDibs today.

The first permanent image created by a camera — which materialized during the 1820s — is attributed to Joseph Nicéphore Niépce. The French inventor was on to something for sure. Kodak introduced roll film in the 1880s, allowing photography to become more democratic, although cameras wouldn’t be universally accessible until several decades later. 

Digital photographic techniques, software, smartphone cameras and social-networking platforms such as Instagram have made it even easier in the modern era for budding photographers to capture the world around them as well as disseminate their images far and wide. 

What might leading figures of visual art such as Andy Warhol have done with these tools at their disposal?

Today, when we aren’t looking at the digital photos that inundate us on our phones, we look to the past to celebrate the photographers who have broken rules as well as records — provocative and prolific artists like Horst P. Horst, Lillian Bassman and Helmut Newton, who altered the face of fashion and portrait photography; visionary documentary photographers such as Gordon Parks, whose best-known work was guided by social justice; and pioneers of street photography such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, who shot for revolutionary travel magazines like Holiday with the likes of globetrotting society lensman Slim Aarons.

Find photographers you may not know in Introspective and The Study — where you’ll read about Berenice Abbott, who positioned herself atop skyscrapers for the perfect shot, or “conceptual artist-adventurer” Charles Lindsay, whose work combines scientific rigor with artistic expression, or Massimo Listri, known for his epic interiors of opulent Old World libraries.

Throughout the past two centuries, photographers have used their medium to create expressive work that has resonated for generations. Shop a voluminous collection of this powerful fine photography on 1stDibs. Search by photographer to find the perfect piece for your living room wall, or spend some time with the work organized under various categories, such as landscape photography, nude photography and more.
