Record sale for rare photo print

A rare print of a photograph taken by US photographer Edward Steichen in 1904 has been sold at auction for an astonishing $2.9 million. Steichen started experimenting with colour photography in the same year that the photograph, Pond-Moonlight, was taken. More details of the sale can be found on the BBC news web site here (including a representation of the photograph) and more about the photographer can be found here.
