Get the Picture
Some advice: Those prints of Impressionistic water lilies or sunflowers adorning your office have become ubiquitous. Perhaps it's time to visit some online photo galleries? Corbis.com stocks 130,000 images in its online library of affordable celebrity, historic, news, and fine art prints ($50 to $200, depending on printing and framing options) from which to choose. At the self-described "snob-free zone" of fine art source Yourwall.com , you'll find well-known works from Annie Leibovitz and Stuart Rome. Visit the site's Emerging gallery to find up-and-coming greats such as George Ciardi, who shoots bold streetscapes. Prices at this site start at $245. Auctioneer Sothebys.com gets its share of artful photos, like the Herb Ritts photograph of Jack Nicholson at right. Prices range from $80 to $3,000 including a 15% commission.
