    Oh, I have heard some horror stories about photo auctions. Rare irreplaceable prints of famous events being returned wrinkled, items lost. Once saw the lifetime work of a rather famous vintage photographer laying around a gallery backroom floor unprotected, below a leaky roof. Most got ruined. After that, the first thing I'd ask of any gallery potentially representing me was to see their back room. I obviously scratched that particular one off my list.

    Mr. Can - what is "moot" about understanding the "cons" of wax, and not just the alleged benefit of it? Yeah, I've got a can of Renaissance Wax in the shop just like everyone else. But it's kinda the "nuclear option" in a irreversible sense. Sometimes use it on frames themselves.

    At one time I had a theory Drew is banksy.

I have several photographs of their street art I took when visiting Norway it was nice to see it in the wild. I wandered around and it was right in front of me ...

    I consider Banksy one or our most important artists

    His work is always complex, more so than many believe

    and printed pictures will be lost sooner than later

    already considered ecologically incorrect

    our days and work are numbered

    That's always been the case. Some are interested in what those numbers might be. Others aren't.
