Jane Cofer, on collecting photography, on Burnaway

Great to see our fabulous ACP board member Jane Cofer talk about the hows and whys of collecting photography, on Burnaway.
"When I graduated in 1989, MTV was cool and a lot of artists were doing videos. I really wanted to be in New York City and make money, so I worked as a production assistant. The first time I made $125 a day I thought, Oh my God, this is high cotton! I was very excited to tell all my friends I worked on an R.E.M. video. Looking back now, I regret buying fancy clothes instead of art. That is especially true when I work with people’s collections and hear that they purchased their pieces in the ’80s. At the time, photography was affordable. Now, not so much!"
