Top 3 Most Expensive Photos in the World
Would someone pay a huge sum of money for a photograph? They would, without a doubt! The following overview includes the top three most expensive photos, as well as some background information on each one. Some of the images are actually choice and were shot in the days when photography necessitated exactitude and ability with superb pizazz, while others are popular due to what or who they portray – or even who took the picture!
3). Jeff Wall: Dead Troops Talk (A dream after a snare of a Red Army Patrol, close Moqor, Afghanistan, winter 1986): 1992: US$3.667 million (May 2012)
According to all accounts, Jeff Wall’s photograph is intended to show the cliché that “one image is worth a thousand words.” The image, which is portrayed by on-screen figures, depicts what can happen after the battle, when the surviving troops have either moved on or been transported somewhere else. The bodies are in connection with one another, the fear and disgust of existence abandoned as they wait for the next event. Divider’s vision has been compared to that of a motion picture director, with the latter’s vision being more successful in capturing all that a film may take an hour and a half to express in a single image. Wall is one of Andreas Gursky’s influences and drives.
2). Cindy Sherman: Untitled #96: 1981: US$3.891 (May 2011)
Cindy Sherman returns to the top ten with Untitled #96, a photograph that, on the surface, appears to be a more pleasant offering than Untitled #153’s cadaver-like image. A closer look and some thought reveals the model (who is, after all, the photographer) laying dejectedly on the floor, a dating promotion crumpled in her hands. We’re left to wonder what went wrong: why didn’t he show up? Is it true that he wasn’t promoted as much as he was supposed to be? Or, on the other side, did something deeper and more traumatic happen on the date, leaving her depressed on the floor? The photo’s power derives from what isn’t seen rather than what is shown. There is no visible pain, tears, or blood, as well as no happiness, ecstasy, or rapture. Because of the picture’s clear, impassioned canvas, it will speak to each viewer in a unique way, depending on their viewpoint and experience.
1). Andreas Gursky: Rhein II: 1999: US$ 4.339 (Nov 2011)
Andreas Gursky, as expected, contributes once more! He topped the list after receiving a significant award for his painting Rhein II, a deceptively simple photograph of a footpath running alongside a stream, both of which are surrounded by lush green grass. Because the artisan has removed dog walkers, people on foot, and even an industrial site from the scene, it appears left and tranquil. The photograph is large, measuring roughly 2 meters in height and more than 3.5 meters in width. The image was collected by an unnamed private gatherer and is described as a ‘dynamic, joyful, and vital’…’sentimental scene.’
