Does anybody know anything about this item on eBay?

 

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280709277573&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT
 
I'm interested in it but does anybody know how much were they when they were released? I know the Paul Stolper ones are ludicrously expensive and I'd like to have one of Kevin's photos at home.
 
Many Thanks

While this particular shot doesn't seem to be available anymore on the Rock Archive site, you can purchase other JD prints here: http://www.rockarchive.com/joy-division-band.html

I would say that it's actually reasonable pricing for a signed, framed, fine art print. The pricing is similar on the rock archive site and those prints aren't framed (and the auction print is signed). Check out the price on the Jill Furmanovsky shot, really expensive. Fine art print prices vary on how well known the photographer is, how rare the photo is, and  the quantity of each print in the edition.

You can always make an offer on that print and see if they take it. These are actual prints from the original negatives, most prints that you can buy on ebay are just reproduction like posters and aren't originals.

Wow, 3K for that Jill Furmanovsky photo. It's a great photo but that is pure greed! Does anybody here have any ideas approx how much the Paul Stolper ones are? I was led to believe they are around 2K each. Is that right?

The market for fine art photographs is completely different than that of records or music memorabilia. It has nothing to do with greed it's about the market and who collects them. Most music fans don't collect original photographs, collectors, museums and galleries do. 

Original prints actually gain more value over time based on when they were printed and in what quantity (or edition), most records don't really appreciate over time. Records are made to be mass produced and marketed to the general public, original photographic prints are not.

Don't get me wrong, if I'd won the Euromillions the other night, I'd definitely have been one as well!
