The 9 most expensive pics in the worldexpensive#1 Rhein II — Andreas Gursky (1999) $4.3 millionThe 9 most expensive pics in the world by PatriceChesse
German photographer Andreas Gursky is known for his large-format architecture and landscape photographs, often taken from above. The above image, “Rhine II,” set the world record for the sale of a photograph when it was auctioned off at Christie’s in New York in November 2011. Before the 1990s, Gursky did not digitally alter his images, but “Rhine II,” a C-print mounted to plexiglass, was digitally altered — Gursky, wanting to construct a desolate landscape, removed distracting elements including a factory building, walkers, and cyclers.
In a video interview, Gursky described his vision for the image: “It says a lot using the most minimal means … for me it is an allegorical picture about the meaning of life and how things are.”

Thomas Leuthard: overgifted contemporary streetThomas Leuthard is a citizen of the world. I discovered him on Flickr.Thomas Leuthard: overgifted contemporary street by PatriceChesse
His gallery : https://www.flickr.com/photos/thomasleuthard/sets/
I like the direct looks straight to the camera. The sign of a great humanist and a great artist.
Very graphical with a deep b&w, I was strucked by the power of his images.
Lee Friedlander: composing the realLee Friedlander is known for his exploration of the American social landscape. Friedlander combines his own psyche with the chaotic, ever changing elements of the street to convey a true urban America.Lee Friedlander: composing the real by PatriceChesse
Landscapes, nudes, portraits and nature studies, Lee Friedlander has experimented with almost every genre since he first began taking pictures in 1948. However, the genre that runs like a tread through every phase of the artist’s work is without a doubt the ‘American social landscape’. Friedlander used the expression in 1963 to describe the core of his oeuvre in Contemporary Photography, a magazine that ceased publication after a few issues. The term would stick to its owner for the rest of his career and, even more so, describe the main focus of an entire generation of American photographers.
Born in 1934, in Aberdeen, Washington, Lee Fried
I am Jenny Stokes.........a lot of you know me very well. This a group for the submission of SERIES of photographs. Instead of being able to submit one image at at time, as for most groups, you submit between 3 and 6 images at once, as a theme, or as a narrative.
This is my first try at Founding a Group, so please bear with us and don't be afraid to ask questions, or suggest a different Folder. This Group could NEVER have happened without ALL the help I have had from
TusharBoss and Bumblepuss. They are both wonderful people and I hope you will take time to 'browse' their wonderful art. (Bobby, sad to say for us, although still a member of the group, has relinquished his Co-founder status due to other commitments)

I love this idea: Many times, as some of you know, I have done Series of pics from one event, then had to break them all up. I found this to be truly annoying! An Event is an Event and the pics should stay together. In this Group you can now do this. Hurrah!
I look forward to seeing you all submit.
Please read the rules carefully.
For more detailed guidelines on what this group is about and how to go about submitting your wonderful work, see the more detailed notes on this page with regards to submission and membership
Meanwhile, enjoy our current Featured selection. This Month it is a selection from our Strip Image submissions.
Thank you all members for your wonderful contributions.
