Punk Photo Collection from Photographer, Documentarian & Film Maker Bill Daniel

Mar 30, 2022

Bill Daniel, photographer and film maker who was part of the early Texas Punk music scene of the late 1970's/ early 80's. His photos have been in countless magazines, flyers and albums but his art is more than that. His documentary photos captured a new and growing scene of music and culture but they are more than that, they are Art. 
His photos were able to this day, convey the energy and moment of each and every shot. 
Sturgis Antiques is very proud to have the chance to work along with the artist and my client who had these images in his collection. 
The collection consists of 19 images and the original film paper box.
Each Photograph is signed on the back in pencil by the artist and titled. 

Bill has agreed to go through his archives and document the year and negative number of each image and include a quick note on the show and the year.
Please take a look to the link below and enjoy a rare glimpse at the Art and History of Bill Daniel Photographs

Music Archive Work

Dec 23, 2020

Thank you for looking and taking a interest in what Sturgis Antiques does. 
Over the years the work in Music Archives has grown, not only on my site but in the world of collecting Music Archives have become a competitive business. I started doing music archives for Sturgis Antiques about 8 years ago with my involvement in brokering Globe Poster sale to MICA and also in selling a part of their extensive poster and photo collection. 
Music is not a new part of my life at all, I have been a record collector almost all my life. I have collected records and when I started my store I said to myself,.." I can buy records!". 
In the past several years I have been adding posters and handbills to my site, not only were they a part of history, but they are also a style of art that took over the art world. Look at the street art of Basquiat, his art has become as popular as some early 20th C. artist.
Now with my new site and the capabilities I now have, I am able to do records and can now add sound clips to these postings making the buyer aware of the quality of the items I am selling. Condition of the vinyl along with the condition of the record sleeve is paramount in the world of record collecting.
