Bucket Of Holes - Dan Behnke Collection: 20 Oct - 27 Oct 2020

Start: 20/10/2020 18:30 BST   End: 27/10/2020 23:10 GMT

‘Switching gears from the Phillips Franklin collection for this week, I have obtained the large collection of well-known photographer and micromounter Dan Behnke. Dan was a long-time friend, member of the Micromounter Hall of Fame, renowned photographer and all-around good person. He gave hundreds of talks at symposia, traded with collectors all over the world and served as a staff photographer for Rocks & Minerals for many years, and hundreds of his photographs of minerals are illustrated in Rocks & Minerals, The Mineralogical Record, The Encyclopedia of Minerals and many other books and publications. All samples offered will come with his original slides and index cards, and many published samples will be offered over the coming months. He told me several times that he was a photographer (first), that just happened to collect and love minerals. His large collection contains some 40000 slides and digital images, and I’m very happy to be able to offer selections from his 16000+ piece collection.’
