Now I do. :biggrin:You guys realize Steichen's Pond was made before color processing existed? Not bad for 1904.
I did a Google search on him the wikipedia link I don't get Jackson Pollock either. :m09:I know I'm not the most artistic person in the world, but could someone explain to me why Gursky's Rhein II is worth 4.3 million? Other than getting the horizon straight, I'm just not seeing anything.
The spending does not say a lot about the quality of the pictures. It's all a matter of how much money you have, in fact of showing how much money you have. Just as the surgeons/lawyers who are walking around with a Leica and shooting with the lens cap on, to a large extend the prices paid for these photos are due to billionaires who want to show off to their fellow one percenters look, I can AFFORD to pay this much for a stupid photo!What do you all think? How would you rank them? How much would YOU spend?
