    Million Dollar Man - SMH

    This was in todays SMH. Thought it would interest a few people here.

    http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/...428-2imjf.html

    I can appreciate art as much as the next person... but $3.8m seems like such a lot of money for a photo.

    Opinions?

    Cheers
    Danny

    The value of something is relative to the person/organisation that buys it. Remember the uproar when the National Gallery bought 'Blue Poles" in 1973 for $1.3 million? In 1973 a brand new holden torana cost $1300.00.

    Here is a list and the photos, of the 10 most expensive photos : http://www.aputure.com/blog/2013/02/...tos-ever-sold/
    as at the February this year. Looks like from your post above, there is a new addition.

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
    Nikon, etc!

    Rick - WOW very interesting post. What a variety!! That no 1 looks.... interesting

    What got me in the SMH article was the fact that Wall could take a year to stage his shoots.
