NEHA PRAKASH & LUKE LEONARD, MASHABLE:
"If a picture's worth a thousand words, these photographs may as well be War and Peace.
"Combined, the top ten most expensive photographs have a value of $31.5 million — with Australian photographer Peter Lik, unexpectedly, shattering world records by earning a cool $6.5 million for "Phantom," a black-and-white shot taken in Antelope Canyon, Arizona.
"ik is no stranger to high-priced photography: His pictures "Illusion" and "Eternal Moods" sold for $2.4 million and $1.1 million, respectively, in November 2014, and "One" earned $1 million in 2010.
"Take a look at the most expensive photographs of all time, and then flip through your phone's photo album. You never know if that beach panorama could make you an overnight baller."
