This photograph of an organic Irish potato has just sold for $1 million to a European businessman who clocked the image in the photographer's Paris home.

The photograph was taken by Irish born photographer Kevin Abosch as part of a series back in 2010 and was taken on his trademark black background. Abosch is more commonly known for his images of big name stars such as Johnny Depp, Dustin Hoffman and Yoko Ono. 

Abosch has said that the decision to buy the photograph was made after the unnamed businessman had consumed a number of glasses of wine at his Paris home, though he also claimed that he understood why the price tag might seem "absurd" to some.
