    Unbelievable. And she ain't dead yet.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Here is a link to the work on Christie's Auction. Not her best, but definitely not her worst.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Its a C-print from 1981, dont know the material but I doubt it will stay stable for the next 100 years .... the price is just ridiculous and we could have the same /art/snapshot conversation here again

    cheers

    That's true, but if her work sells for those sort of amounts the temptation of interested parties to remedy the situation might be too great to make them limited editions

    While it would have been great for us photographers if the buyer had bought 3,890 prints from various artists for $1000 each instead, this is still amazing. It would be nice if the artist got 10% of these sales as a general rule.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
