Default This photograph sold for 6.5 million dollars

This is the Most Expensive Photograph in the World

By Sophia Callahan — Dec 9 2014




Selling for $6.5 million, Peter Lik's "Phantom" is now reportedly the most expensive photo in the world. The image, which captures Arizona's Antelope Canyon, sold to a private collector according to a press release from LIK USA™.

"Certain textures and contours found in nature lend themselves beautifully to black and white photography. The intensity of contrasting light and dark spaces was surprising, but made for some of the most powerful images I've ever created," says Lik. The Australian photographer, who is now based in the US, is known for his expansive, panoramic landscapes.

The record-breaking sale also included two additional works by Lik, "Illusion" which sold for $2.4 million and "Eternal Moods" for $1.1 million, totaling up to a staggering $10 million. Having previously sold a work titled "One" for $1 million, Lik now accounts for four of the 20 most expensive photographs ever sold.

“The purpose of all my photos is to capture the power of nature and convey it in a way that inspires someone to feel passionate and connected to the image," says Lik.

Lik is now more of a brand rather than artist.
