500 Portraits Averaged into 1 Image

Back in May of this year, we posted about a woman who had done a Portrait a Day for the last 4 1/2 years.

You can see the results above in which 500 photographs were averaged.

The previous record for most expensive photograph was held by Andreas Gursky’s 99 Cent II which sold for $3.3 million back in 2007.
