Andreas Gursky. The Most Expensive Photographer

Posted in Home by Yahor | Tags:

Andreas Gursky holds the record for highest price paid at auction for a single photographic image. His print ’99 Cent II, Diptych’ sold for $3.3 million at Sotheby’s, London.

He was born in Leipzig in 1955, but he grew up in Düsseldorf, the son of a commercial photographer.

Running the Numbers by Chris Jordan

Running the Numbers looks at contemporary American culture through the austere lens of statistics. Each image portrays a specific quantity of something: fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of paper use); 106,000 aluminum cans (thirty seconds of can consumption) and so on. My hope is that images representing these quantities might have a different effect than the raw numbers alone, such as we find daily in articles and books. Statistics can feel abstract and anesthetizing, making it difficult to connect with and make meaning of 3.6 million SUV sales in one year, for example, or 2.3 million Americans in prison, or 32,000 breast augmentation surgeries in the U.S. every month.

Barbie Dolls depicts 32,000 Barbies, equal to the number of elective breast augmentation surgeries performed monthly in the US in 2006.
