Investment? It's art! In order to profit from anything, you must part with it, sell it and it is no longer part of your life. To bring top dollar, you must sell through a gallery. The result of the "top dollar" sale is to split the proceeds with the gallery which pretty much cuts your return in half.

Until they are sold, the photographs are worth exactly what I paid for them.

And, no, I won't part with them for what I paid for them.
