About Catawiki's photography auction

While the principles of photography have been known for hundreds of years, it was not until 1816 that Nicéphore Niépce captured the first image using a camera. Niépce’s achievement was followed by the invention of the photographic process, as we know it today, thanks to the work of pioneers such as Louis Daguerre and Henry Fox Talbot. Some of the most iconic images in modern history are photographs, whether surprisingly intimate scenes of individuals or honest and distressing images made by war photographers in an attempt to accurately report world events. The rise of digital technology in the late 20th Century has further changed the face of photography, providing photographers with an increasingly wide range of techniques and possibilities.

Catawiki’s photography auctions cover categories including Digital; Analog - Post-1960’s; Magic Lantern and Leica photographic objects. Whether you are looking to sell a rare antique camera or a modern digital device, Catawiki is the perfect place to sell your special photographic objects.
