Who buys photography?

The main sectors, taken from this week’s lecture:

  1. Communication agencies
  2. Businesses
  3. Magazines and newspapers
  4. E-commerce and catalogues
  5. PR companies
  6. Record companies and music companies
  7. Book publishers
  8. The general public

Numbers 7 and 8 are the most relevant to my work. Its focus on vernacular narrative means that my images are unlikely to be bought as singles, but as sets which form a photo book. However, I do have images which are not narrative in style. These are aesthetically pleasing singles which in theory could be used in magazines or possibly PR companies.
