Art Market Watch
"The fall photography auctions have come and gone, and the results are so staggering that the New York photo world still hasn’t recovered. Prices soared at all three houses. Sotheby’s set a new world record for a 20th-century photo -- $720,000 at the hammer, $822,400 with the auction-house premium -- not once but twice."
