Michel Comte

The saturated colors of the broiling desert against the piercing blue of the clear sky or the cool palette of an intimate black-and-white portrait, Michel Comte can do it all. The Swiss star photographer has made his mark on fashion and celebrity photography since his first international advertising campaign for Karl Lagerfeld in 1979. Comte’s oeuvre truly is the work of a homme modern – capturing the most celebrated figures of the century, from boxers to supermodels, such as Carla Bruni or Helena Christensen. His portraits, nudes, or fashion campaigns always come exceptionally close to his subjects and create an intimate setting for the viewer.
