Gas station for sale between $6,000 and $8,000 – but there’s a catch…

The Phillips auction in New York beginning on September 30 will not see the Shell station itself go under the hammer, but instead a 1977 photograph of it taken by renowned American photographer William Eggleston…

Eggleston’s image – carrying an estimate of between $6,000 and $8,000 – will be part of a 264-strong collection of fine art photographs, including work from the likes of Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Richard Prince, Cindy Sherman, William Eggleston, Nobuyoshi Araki and Thomas Ruff.
