Across four decades, Comte has created an extraordinary range of images in a wide variety of genres. Attacking every theme with passion, intelligence and an intensely personal visual style, his works are amongst the most important and iconic every made. From vivacious portraits of the most famous people in the world, to ethereal musings of the clouds floating above the Swiss landscape, The Michel Comte Estate offers work from all stages of the artist’s photographic career, across all themes. All works demonstrate the artists love and understanding of the photographic process, as well as his painterly understanding of composition and colour.
Amongst the categories available are Comte’s portraits of artists, icons and supermodels, his nudes and backstage works, along with groups of works such as the iconic ‘Paparazzi’, ‘Aiko T’ and ‘Beauty and the Beast’ series. These images have appeared in a variety of media, from fashion magazines and international advertising campaigns to more intimate artist’s books and the walls of galleries and museums worldwide. Regardless of their context, the works are always striking and always go beyond mere snapshots to speak more broadly of the world and humanity.
Works are available in Editions of 1/2/7 and 20. Online Exclusive Editions are available in editions of 100 and can be exclusively and directly purchased via our website.
