    Irish photographer says he sold picture of potato for €1m

    Kevin Abosch sells image to European businessman who saw it in his Paris home

    Irish entrepreneur, investor and photographer[at]Kevin Abosch[at]has sold a photograph of an Irish potato for €1 million, he confirmed to[at]The Irish Times.

    Mr Abosch sold the 162x162cm print to a European businessman, who had inquired about buying it when he saw it in the photographer’s home in Paris. Mr Abosch told the businessman, who wants to remain anonymous, that the price was non-negotiable at €1 million. He photographed the potato at his Dublin home in 2010 and made three prints of it. “I see commonalities between humans and potatoes that speak to our relationship as individuals within a collective species. Generally, the life of a harvested potato is violent and taken for granted. I use the potato as a proxy for the ontological study of the human experience

    Potatoes originally originate from South America. The Irish stole them from the natives,all them years ago.
