Top 05 Most Expensive Photographs In The World

#1 Rhein II - Andreas Gursky (1999) $4.3 million

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…

#2 Untitled #96 – Cindy Sherman (1981) $3.9 million

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.

#3 Dead Troops Talk – Jeff Wall (1992) $3.7 million

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

#4 99 Cent II, Diptychon – Andreas Gursky (2001) $3.3 million

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…

#5 The Pond/Moonlight – Edward Steichen (1904) $2.9 million

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
