Underwater Photography For Sale on 1stDibs

On 1stDibs, you can find the most appropriate piece of underwater photography for your needs in our varied inventory. You can easily find an example made in the Modern style, while we also have 13 Modern versions to choose from as well. Making the right choice when shopping for an item from our selection of underwater photography may mean carefully reviewing examples of this item dating from different eras — you can find an early iteration of this piece from the 20th Century and a newer version made as recently as the 21st Century. If you’re looking to add a choice in our collection of underwater 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, blue, gray, purple and more. An object in our assortment of underwater photography from Howard Schatz, Paul-Émile Rioux, Dell Cullum, Alex Sher and Slim Aarons — each of whom created distinctive versions of this kind of work — is worth considering. These artworks were handmade with extraordinary care, with artists most often working in pigment print, archival pigment print and c print. A large option in this array of underwater photography can prove too dominant for some spaces — a smaller piece of underwater photography, measuring 15.75 high and 15 wide, may better suit your needs.

How Much is a Underwater Photography?

A piece of underwater photography can differ in price owing to various characteristics — the average selling price for items in our inventory is $3,400, while the lowest priced sells for $350 and the highest can go for as much as $75,000.

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.
