I have always wondered why some of the world’s most expensive modern photographs were worth the price. The photographs in this post mimic one such photograph. In an art gallery on seeing a photograph valued in the low six figures, I asked the gallery owner why it was so expensive. I was told it’s not the photo alone that sets the price but the fact that it was printed on special paper with special inks. And while some papers and some inks make a difference I could not see it making that much of difference. Some things are just bluff.
