This Photo of a Potato Sold for over $1 Million

According to the Independent, a European businessman purchased this photo of a potato for 1 million euros ($1,086,950). Of course, it's probably not the potato itself that made the photograph so pricey. It was taken by acclaimed photographer Kevin Abosch in 2010 and is one of three versions of the print in existence.

Abosch says it's the most expensive photo he's ever sold, and most of his work typically goes for around $280,000. So if any photo of a potato is ever going to be worth $1 million, it seems this would be the one.
Still, that's an absurd price to pay for a photo of a potato.

Smith Anele said...

What's so spectacular about that potato picture that it had to be sold at that price?
I can see that some rich white guys do not know what to do with their money. I believe there are lots of poor people over there they can help with this money they are throwing around.
