ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – An Irish photographer makes a million dollars with one shot. Kevin Abosch is famous for his photos
of Yoko Ono, Johnny Depp, Dustin Hoffman and Steven Spielberg.

His latest photograph isn’t a celebrity picture but an organic spud. This print of a potato was sold to a European business man for one million dollars. The buyer says he liked the simple portrait named, “Potato #345.”
