The most expensive photograph in the world

Andreas Gursky - German photographer from Leipzig. Most of all he likes to take large-scale panoramic photos from these perspectives that are usually out of reach. And it turns out he perfectly. In 2011, Christie's auction of his picture "Rhine IIĀ» was sold for a record 4, 3 million dollars, becoming at that time the most expensive photograph in the history of auctions.

Website struck by the grandeur and epic of these works, and invites you to enjoy the best of them.
