I SIMPLY CAN’T SIT BY AND NOT COMMENT ON THE TOTALLY ASININE PRICE PAID FOR A POTATO SNAPSHOT

KEVIN ABOSCH SELLS PHOTOGRAPH OF POTATO FOR $1.5 MILLION.  The chips certainly aren’t down for photographer Kevin Abosch.
He recently sold this photograph of a potato for £750,000 ($1.5 million). Really.”

F#&$ing REALLY!

THE WORLD OF PHOTOGRAPHY HAS HIT A NEW LOW in new highs!  It’s not even a great photo of a potato!

I’m beating my brains out to construct new art photography and ATTEMPT to get my work seen by potential buyers, and this guy has a few drinks with a wealthy businessman, and bitta-bing-bitta-bang…sells a dirty potato photo. 

So potatoes are the hot item now? 

At least Edward Weston’s black & white photograph of a pepper (Pepper – 1930) is CLASSIC and beautiful…the lines and shadows gently rolling into highlights…the curvature…marvelous!  WESTON was a Master of light and shadow.

I’m sickened.

Anyway,

Maybe weeds will be the next great money maker for a handful of photographers, if so, then please consider purchasing my weed photograph…AND IT WON’T COST YOU $1.5 MILLION!  I’LL sell a high-quality print to you at the low price of $750,000 — that’s a GREAT DEAL!
