In a first for a major auction house, presented here is the first non-fungible token (NFT) lot to be offered in a Photographs auction. Justin Aversano’s Twin Flames is a visual elegy to the twin that the artist never knew. The images that comprise Twin Flames were originally shot in three film formats--Polaroid, 120mm, and 4x5--and over the course of fourteen months beginning in May of 2017. This lot includes an NFT of Bahareh & Farzaneh, the cover image of his self-published book, along with a the full physical collection of 100 chromogenic prints in the series.
