To desperate Rob;
here is an adress to check out some dealers/galleries:
I did a search on the net, so I can't be positive about this being THE Gursky you are looking for.

Hope you've got deep pockets, Rob. The last I heard full-sized Gurskys were starting at $50,000 per (the New Yorker said he only makes six copies of each picture, and he makes about 10 pictures per year). That's just for the initial sale; at auction his images have been approaching the quarter-million-dollar mark. Don't know if he offers smaller, poster-like larger runs, though.

If you mean reproductions-- there is a new book by Peter Galassi that has just been published by Museum of Modern Art (NYC) in conjuction with the Gursky exhibit.

From todays Photo District News Newswire (who say's people won't buy digital stuff...
Andreas "He who can do no wrong" Gursky’s "O.T. VI, 1997" was sold for a new record of $310,250. It was estimated at $150,000. It was the first time Gursky’s photograph of artist Jackson Pollock’s "One: Number 31" went on sale. An anonymous Asian buyer in the room, bidding against London dealer Jay Jopling, bought the picture.
