How Much Would You Pay For This Photograph?



BBC Have you ever gazed upon a river and thought, “This would make a lovely photograph that someone would pay millions of dollars for”? No? Well, that’s why you’re not Andreas Gursky. A chromogenic color print of the Gursky photo below, entitled Rhein II, sold for a whopping $4.3 million at Christie’s in New York this week, the AP reports, making it the most expensive photo ever sold at auction.

Really... Someone paid how much for this... I just suck at life.

No, whoever has that much money and decides to blow it on a goddamn photo sucks at life cause the way they spent it clearly implies they didn't hard earn it.

wow, some people waste money. Great photo but certainly not worth that sort of money.

Gursky digitally erased buildings on the far side of the river from his picture.

This manipulation enhances the image visually, giving it more formal coherence.

Rather than the sense of a specific place, the picture conveys an almost Platonic ideal of a body of water traversing as landscape.
lot of money for this. maybe in 10 years it's worth double the money so a good investment.
