    That's it, tonight when I get home I'm making the kid lay on the kitchen floor holding a scrap of want ads and taking a poorly framed photo of her, then I am going to do a limited printing of 1 copy.

    That's a fairly distinguished list of literature citations for this one image--Jack Flam, Rosalind Krauss, Peter Schjeldahl, etc.--so empirically, this stands out as a particularly representative example of the work of Cindy Sherman, so that may have something to do with the price.

    I'll happily sell one of my photos for half that.

    I think it's a gorgeous file on the site, must be even more so as a print.
