Talk:List of most expensive photographs
|WikiProject History of photography||(Rated Start-class)|
My intention was to just get this page started with as much information as I could gather from the Internet and then to pass this on to someone more informed. Is there a place on the Internet that keeps track of this? I couldn't find any - just found mention of high auctions on several different websites. CDA 19:29, 29 August 2005 (UTC)
Looking at this 2007 article on Artnet, they mention a Cindy Sherman photo selling for over US$2 million and a Hiroshi Sugimoto triptych selling for US$1.8 million. The top 10 list probably needs to be updated. Asianartfan 10:00, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
According to this It appears that Cindy Sherman's "untitled #153" sold for US$2,700,000. That would be in addition to Cindy Sherman's "untitled #92", sold for US$2,112,000, mentioned and referenced above. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Brownox (talk • contribs) 05:19, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
Top ten per artnet, 2003
I note with interest that artnet's 2003 list has two photos listed at a sale price of 607,500, yet neither is listed in this article, even though the price is higher than of some items that are listed. Assuming that artnet's listing is correct, and that this article has only existed since 2005, I am left to conclude that this article has never been accurate. Worse still, the artnet link has been in the article since 25 October 2005, shortly after its creation. Samsara (talk • contribs) 12:43, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Print not photo
This item was pulled from the list, because it is a print, not a photograph:
