Retro Photos


Tennis – a collection of vintage photographs. All the presented photographs of this series were purchased for a private collection in Moscow in the middle of the 2000s at an auction in Paris. The collection offers a unique experience of a thematic collection that, before the sale, partly belonged in the archives of the agency France-Presse, as well as in other private French collections. Most of the photos were made for newspapers and magazines of the time, some include editorial notes and edits, occasionally a handwritten annotation on the back of the photo that indicates the event or depicted person. Most often the photographers remain unknown, yet there are also prints with an exact indication of the author. The photographs were taken between 1910 and 1950. Read more
