The most expensive photo ever sold is a grey river beneath an overcast sky, taken by Andreas Gursky (who has two on this list). It was shot in 1999 and sold in 2011. Interestingly, Gursky photoshopped a factory and some people walking dogs out of the image. I am scratching my head…
This self portrait was the world’s most expensive when it sold for nearly $4 million in 2011. New York art dealer Philippe Segalot was the “winner” at this auction, outbidding another art dealer.
Jeff Wall’s conceptual photo of a battlefield of dead Soviet soldiers talking to one another is one of the more compelling on this list. The attention to detail is outstanding, and very gruesome
Like Gursky’s first photo on this list, this one was also digitally altered, to compensate for perspective distortion. 6 copies were made, and 2 of them sold for over #2 million. It’s probably our favorite in this top 10 list. Gursky can probably retire now after all his sales…
The oldest photograph on the list, sold in 2006, was one of the earliest color photographs, and only 3 copies exist. It also gets my nod for being one of the best on this list, and looks more like a painting than a picture
