“The perfect image is not something that can be taught.”

— Andreas Gursky (via FT)

Gursky’s photograph “99 Cent II Diptych” was once the world’s most expensive photograph before another one of his images “Rhein II” was sold for $4.3m at Christie’s New York in 2011. 

However, I still dig the artifice projected in his 2017 high-speed train ride in Tokyo where he stitched multiple images together to give the photo a blurring effect.
