The World’s Most Expensive Photographer – Andreas Gursky

German photographer Andreas Gursky, is a world known artist, who is famous for his contemporary photography artwork. Pictures he takes are usually recognized by the colossal size of architecture and landscapes. His work is not only breathtaking but also well-paid!
