The experience of purchasing fine art photography online is about to change drastically thanks to the launch of an awesome new site called PurePhoto. PurePhoto is the brainchild of a group of world renowned photographers who came to the realisation that the process of purchasing fine art photography online could be so much more enjoyable and rewarding. Choosing to purchase fine art online is a great alternative for those who prefer not to be exposed to the snobbery of the gallery world – however, the trade-off has has been lack of interaction with the artist and their work that one would usually receive when visiting a gallery, but not online. That is, until now. What PurePhoto have done is create a platform that not only gives buyers the freedom to browse the fantastic offerings at their leisure, but also gives buyers the opportunity to interact with a community of other buyers and artists in a social network style setting. If you have ever been too intimidated to enter a pretentious gallery space, or felt disillusioned by an uninspiring and cold experience with an online gallery, then PurePhoto is the place for you.
According to the PurePhoto site:
“PurePhoto is a new kind of site – a social commerce network – that directly connects art collectors to photographers. We have fused art education, social networking, and buying into a single site. Whether you’re buying your first piece, an established collector, an artist, or an interior designer, PurePhoto makes it easy to discover and purchase new images from all over the world without leaving the comfort of your pajamas. You won’t have to visit 15 galleries, get accosted by a man named Dieter in a black turtleneck or be turned away because you have never heard of the artist. We are revolutionizing art sales by making it easy for everyone to discover, connect and collect. Join the movement.”
Not only is PurePhoto very attractive and easy to navigate, there are also many fantastic features integrated into the site that make finding the right photograph to turn your interior space into a special place a great experience.
