It’s only been a month and a half since The Most Expensive Picture published the first most expensive picture in the world (1 dollar), by the Swiss Lukas Wassmann. Today, the project has more than a hundred contributions.

TMEP gives you the opportunity to have one of your photographs on their website's front page, on the sole condition that you pay for it one dollar more than the person before you. The picture will stay on TMEP's front page until somebody outbids you, becoming then part of the archive, which is already a collection of snapshots of all kinds. From landscapes to advertising logos, including others like the image worth 23 dollars, titled, of course, Twenty-three dollar picture.

The creators of this project explain that once they reach 300 pictures they will invest the money collected by then in a paper catalogue that will increase their diffusion. In times like these when things are almost required to be free, TMEP stirs up the controversy on the price of things (do they have one? and if they do, how much and who decides?).

For now, we want to congratulate Zorica Radovic for being the author of the most expensive picture in the world, at least for now.
