The National Gallery of Victoria is believed to have spent $1 million for a Canadian photographer's backlit photograph. I hope we will not have to pay to see this in the gallery as I will certainly go along to see what kind of picture cost $1m of taxpayers money. http://www.theage.com.au/news/entertainment/tangled-up-in-blue/2006/12/15/1166162322316.html Does anyone know of this photographer? I did google, but the information was only what I saw in our local newspaper, which the above link should get you to. The newspaper article called it a backlit Cibachrome. I have never heard of that, possibly it may be a duratrans, or like product. It appears that as it is a completely staged photograph, it is art. I don't have a problem with that, it just seems the art world now is agreeing that staged photographs, are art, just like staged paintings. Mick.
