This is a story on the recent purchase by the National Gallery of Victoria (Australia) of a work by Canadian photographer Jeff Wall for a cool A$1,000,000. This is especially interesting since Wall, 60, is still vertical and breathing. Good for him. I have seen a good number of his truly interesting works and I think this is great news for fine art photography at large.
What do you think?
PS Wall, a fellow LFer, shoots staged events in color with an 8x10 Sinar and produces backlit "Cibachromes" of gigantic proportions.
