OK the potato is not actually worth a Million Euro’s but the photograph is!

This image was taken by famed fine art photographer Kevin Abosch and was hanging in his apartment in Paris when a wealthy businessman (after a few glasses of wine apparently) offered to buy this now famous Irish Potato.

It took a couple of weeks of negotiation but when the price was agreed it became Kevin Abosch’s most expensive photograph.

Mr Abosch is not unfamiliar in receiving a high price for his work, his commissioned portraits cost at least £200,000. He has a long list of celebrity clients who have been shot by the Irishman, most notably Sheryl Sandberg, the Facebook executive, Johnny Depp and Steven Spielberg.
