Kuwait Stock Exchange by Andreas Gursky

Post by Mark

Yesterday I found out that the popular German large format photographer, Andreas Gursky, had captured two photos of the Kuwait Stock Exchange. The one pictured in this post was auctioned off at Sotheby’s for KD280,000!

His two Kuwait Stock Exchange photos were captured one year apart. The first photo was captured in 2007 and you can view it [Here] while the second photo which is pictured in this post was taken in 2008 and you can view the larger version [Here]

    Just went through some of his work and realized I take much better pictures on my iPhone 8 – just need to print them out on a large poster and hope someone offers 280,000 KD for them.
