How are photos selected for each Collection?

  • Technical quality and execution
  • Uniqueness / originality
  • Overall visual aesthetic
  • Production value
  • Commercial Viability

These factors are not mutually exclusive, they are subjective which is why we’re relying on our team of highly qualified editors to find the right place for each photo. The curations are not permanent and are subject to change based on seasonality, aesthetic trends, multiple reviews and audits.

You can see the price and details of the photos in both collections when you go to your store and click on the photo.
