It was some years ago that I first stumbled on the name of German photographer Andreas Gursky.
I was absolutely astounded to discover that he had, back in 2011, had one of his photographs called Rhein II sell at auction for $4.3 million dollars. That’s the sort of earning from photography that most of us, myself included, can only dream about.
This is Rhein II…
What is interesting to note about Rhein II is that Gursky edited out a few people walking on the riverbank, and also deleted a complete factory….and they say the camera never lies! Apparently you just don’t ever see such a bland scene alongside the Rhine.
Anyway, I thought if Gursky can do it, so can I.
So here is my answer to Rhein II – I have called it Oreti II (funny that…), and I haven’t deleted any people or factories!
I’ll accept any reasonable offer if anyone wishes to buy it.
