“Phantom” – A photograph by Australian photographer Peter Lik, was sold to a private collector for a staggering $6.5 million. The black and white image shows a beam of light resembling a ghost, and was captured at Arizona’s Antelope Canyon, a slot canyon that’s popular among landscape photographers.
“Certain textures and contours found in nature lend themselves beautifully to black and white photography,” Lik said in the statement. “The intensity of contrasting light and dark spaces was surprising, but made for some of the most powerful images I’ve ever created.”
The buyer preferred not to be publicly identified for security reasons, purchased two other photographs for $2.4 million and $1.1 million “Illusion” and “Eternal Moods,” respectively. Would you pay $6.5M for a photo?
