OstLicht Camera Auction Spring 2023

We are pleased to present the camera auction on 1 June 2023 at 2pm CEST at OstLicht, Gallery for Photography in Vienna. 1991 was the birth year of the first Leica Shop worldwide, in 2001 I started the auction house WestLicht in Vienna with my team. After 34 successful auctions with numerous world record prices for cameras, I handed over the camera auctions to a concern, also in order to concentrate on the WestLicht Photo and Camera Museum, the OstLicht Photo Gallery and the OstLicht Photo Auctions. However, when I was recently offered the fantastic collection of a private connoisseur, I could not resist the temptation. Especially as this man acquired most of the pieces he collected from me over the years, always attaching great importance to perfect condition and originality. This has resulted in a collection that we are now delighted to offer in this auction. The traditional OstLicht Photo Auction will start on 2 June at 5 pm CEST. We cordially invite you to come to Vienna or to participate as a absentee bidder. Our long-time auctioneer Niki Schauerhuber and the team are looking forward to welcoming you.
