This Photo Is Valued At Over Half A Million Dollars
$578,500 USD to be exact.
In the case of the recent Eggleston auction, the photograph ‘Memphis (Tricycle)’ that sold for $578,500 was dismissed by several commenters as a snapshot that ‘any fool with a camera could have taken’.
I need to start doing ‘fine art’ photography.
Who are you to tell me a picture of my foot isn’t worth a billion dollars? Let me tell you why it’s fine art.
So it turns out that one of da Vinci’s students painted Mona Lisa alongside him as he did his work. Notice the similarities, yet subtle differences, such as the incorporation of red. It’s also interesting to note the arched eyebrows. They both have a subtly different feel to it.
It’s as though the Mona Lisa got remixed.
The earliest copy of Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece, Mona Lisa, has been found in the vaults of a Spanish museum, looking younger and more ravishing than the original.
Art historians have hailed the discovery, made during conservation work at the Prado Museum, as one of the most remarkable in recent times.
Museum officials said it was almost certainly painted by one of Leonardo da Vinci’s apprentices alongside the master himself as he did the original.
Julie contacted us and wanted to share some of her work. I wasn’t expecting much till I saw the intricate work she put into this set and had to share it with everyone.
The set decoration and theme for each piece makes for an incredible story hidden behind each shot. The great use of balance between post and photography makes each shot an art piece.

About the set:
“When I was a little kid, at nightfall, my mother used to tell me stories of crows and other mystical creatures living in magical forests… Night tales where enchantment and gloominess would intermingle… I would then imagine what I could not see and would therefore end up wandering into a world that did not belong to anyone, that other world made of magic and darkness: that of Julie Annabelle Schimel.
“Re Nouveau” is the first exhibition of this young Parisian photographer.
