Does it look like an ordinary photo to you in the first look? 

Now look at it again and find out the reason why it is worlds most expensive photo.

Yes you heard it right it is worlds most expensive photo to be sold in shocking amount of $1,000,000+

 

The photo, titled “Potato #345 (2010),” is by photographer Kevin Abosch, who charges huge fees to shoot portraits of famous business people in the Silicon Valley tech industry.

The price was non-negotiable: €1,000,000, or about $1,083,450 with today’s exchange rate. The buyer agreed to the price and purchased the photo, making it Abosch’s largest sale of a single image to date.

The price is a far cry from the $6.5 million that was allegedly paid for Peter Lik’s “Phantom” photo, but the sale price places this photo in the top 20 of most expensive photos of all time: it’s almost exactly the same price that was paid for Edward Weston’s “Nautilus (1927)” at a Sotheby’s New York auction in April 2010.
