Historically, prices for fine art photography have tended to be much lower than those fetched by artists working in other medium, but that seems to be changing for some parts of this market, albeit pretty slowly.

José Miguel Ferreira's insight:

Perphaps because much photographic work today is under the umbrella of contemporary art (conceptual, emotionless and, well, boring, for the most part). Photography, particularly b&w fine-art photography, only fetches high prices if they're works from recognized masters. Preferably dead. Even then, most of those sales are nothing else than speculation and "investment".

What is certain is that a lot of contemporary is being overpriced and a lot of masters are being underpriced. This may be something to do with the size of pictures are now being produced compared to more delicate and smaller  20th century pieces.

“There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative,” he said. “Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.” – Henri Cartier Bresson.
