A couple are very surprising to be over a million dollars?

I love Stieglitz works, especially those of O'Keefe. The spareness is evocative and elegant, a treat for the eye and the intellect. Thank you so much for posting these!

So powerful in their stark simplicity. Thanks for posting these Stieglitz photos.

Love it so much. She is impressive and courageous. I am always thinking about her.

Well, I thought the photos were fabulous but I'm obviously not educated enough in the valuation of photographs to be able to understand what factors determine such a high price. Exceptionally interesting though!
