Today, all of us have the opportunity to take an infinite number of photographs, so a good picture is no longer surprising. And photographs from the category of art somehow smoothly turned into something ordinary. Like, everyone does them, what's so special about that? Pictures are another matter, this is real art! But in fact, these very "ordinary" photographs can sometimes cost more than those same pictures.

We at Interesting to Know have compiled a list of the 10 most expensive photographs in history. Some pictures are listed twice because they have been bought and sold multiple times.
