Metasphere is famous for several things. One of the most revolutionary Photographs of the 20th century, the masterpiece is world's first sculpted and painted photograph. It took the Artist 332 hours of work to create. From the early Seventies James Elliott brought to the medium of Photography a transformative level of creativity and gravitas, which just was not there before. Vastly ahead of its time, the work predicts and predates the computer imagery of the Millennium era. It challenges preconceived ideas about Photography and Art. Regarded by many as the magnum opus of Elliott's early 'Symphonies For The Camera', an original approach , orchestrating reality for the camera rather than vice versa.
In the early Nineties it several times smashed world record prices for a contemporary Artist Photographer.
It finally sold for £25,500 (£44,000 adjusted by Bank Of England), at which point it sold out. Ground breaking stuff at the time.
