For those of you selling your photographic art particularly through galleries, how have your sales been this year compared to previous years? The majority of my income comes from commercial photography but my x-ray art (www.x-rayarts.com) sales have become a significant part of the business over the past few years.
I have work in eight galleries from Charleston SC to New York and Chicago. Galleries that were selling significant numbers of large prints have fallen back this year and larger numbers of smaller print sales have become the norm. Galleries that were my most active are slower and less active galleries are selling more small images. The total income is slightly down as of this date but not dramatically. A good deal of my work sells through interior designers so I don't know if the change in sales is due to trends in the design world moving to clusters of smaller prints or due to economic trends.
