"Becoming an ‘art collector’ sounds lofty and unachievable but we’re overthinking it,” says Stone. “The reality is that you simply start buying pieces which you identify with and say something to you.

“Photography is the most accessible art form because it captures a time in history; a human evolution; a movement; a feeling.”
