An undisclosed buyer paid $4.3 million for a photograph by Andreas Gursky on Tuesday last week at Christie's Auction House in New York. The photo was origionally estimated to bring in between $2.5 and $3.5 million.
The question I have for all the expert photographers on this site is the same as the title. Is this photograph really worth it? I am hoping to learn something here, aside from my own opinion and uneducated eye. What do you think?
