The Top Ten Auctioned Photos

Posted: December 13th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Photography

With Gursky’s Rhine II setting the all-time auction record paid for a photograph last month, a lot of attention has been paid to the top selling photos at an auction.

I like the variety and surreal price tags attached to these images, many of which would not even cause me to pause in a museum.
