A photo of an Irish potato taken by a world-famous visual artist has sold for more than $1 million.
The photo of the potato against a black background was taken byKevin Abosch, a visual artist who has photographed Malala Yousafza,Yoko Ono and others.
While Abosch usually gets half a million dollars for his portraits, the photograph of the potato stood out to a European businessman who purchased it after seeing it at the artist’s Paris home.Let's be kind and say that it's a good photo; it's a really, really good photo of an unwashed potato. Having said that, I have tons of photos I'd sell for much, much less. Indie bands? Need album covers? I got 'em coming out of my ears.
