Ladies and gentlemen, this is officially the most expensive photo. Ever.
The Andreas Gursky photo has just been sold by auction at Christie’s for the eye-watering sum of USD 4,338,000 presumably to an anonymous buyer who likes rivers. Click here to see the Christie’s page for the auction lot.
Admittedly it is a very BIG photograph, which probably helps define its price. And it looks like it has a very nice frame too which is useful.
