“NEW YORK – A photograph of a pond taken by Edward Steichen sold for more than $2.9 million on Tuesday, easily setting a world record for the highest-priced photograph ever auctioned, Sotheby’s said.
‘The Pond-Moonlight,’ taken on Long Island in 1904, sold for $2,928,000, including the buyer’s premium, Sotheby’s spokesman Matthew Weigman said. It was bought by Peter MacGill, of Pace/MacGill Gallery, on behalf of a private collector.”
