The most expensive photo

This is Rhein II by Andreas Gursky, it’s the most expensive photo ever sold (if you exclude celeb wedding and baby photos) and I’m really not sure why.

I can pretty safely say this is the most boring photo in the top 10 most expensive photos. I would much rather have Billy the Kid:


Or this hundred year old, hand layered photo of a moonlight relfected in a pond:


Or, to be honest, almost any photo. $4.4m is utterly absurd.
