So… ten years ago, a British guy named Rick Norsigian went to a garage sale in California and picked up a set of photo negatives he found interesting. His cost? £30 ($46).
He made prints of them from time to time, and his relatives always commented about how much they looked like Ansel Adams’ work.
After a decade of hearing this, the man finally took the negatives to a Beverly Hills art gallery… who not only confirmed that it is Adams’ work… but estimated that they’re worth around £128 million (almost $200 million).
