Cindy Sherman, "Untitled", 1981

On the left is a picture of the world's most expensive photograph at this time. A print sold for $3,890,500.00 (3.89m) at auction at Christie's. It's by a woman photographer, Cindy Sherman, and it is an early self-portrait in one of her endless personas on a tile floor. She's always said she was jealous of her ex-BF Richard Prince's holding the record price at one time with one of his rephotographed Marlboro Man ads. [Link]. Sherman's work was estimated to sell for 1.5-2m., but apparently two bidders got into a heated competition to acquire this work, which exists only in a very small edition. To see more of Sherman's work, look here: [Link].
