Believe it or not the photo which is shown below has fetched $US4.3 million ($A4.23million) at an auction at Christie’s in New York. The photo was taken by Andreas Gursky, and is digitally doctored as well. I don’t know but it looks like a very boring photo to me, but then I’m not a photographer, but I certainly wouldn’t even buy a print of this to hang anywhere in the house. I really don’t understand how someone could pay so much money for a photo, that isn’t even original. The mind boggles.
