Robert Altman, Vogue Italia, 1993

Staring directly at the camera, this is a proud and respectful depiction of the great director. Despite the apparent simplicity of the image, Comte has boldly cropped his sitter down the centre of his face, creating a sense of elusiveness to the image – that a photo only tells a part of the story. Robert Altman (1925 – 2006) was one of the most celebrated directors of all time, receiving seven Academy Award Nominations for his films including McCabe and Mrs. Miller (1971), Nashville (1975) and Gosford Park (2001). This is a stirring portrait of an artist at the height of accomplishment.
