The photo was originally expected to be between $ 10,000 and $ 15,000, was purchased by more than twice its estimated selling price, a Christie’s spokesperson confirmed. The 13-inch by 8 5/8-inch frame photography was acquired by an anonymous telephone bidder.

The front is a photograph of several taken by American photographer Lee Friedlander in 1979. Madonna, then a student with limited cash, got $ 25 for the entire photo session.

Most of the images from the film were finally presented at the Playboy magazine in 1985.
