Michel Conte
by Michel Comte
Publisher's Description
An eccentric endowed with a subtle intuition, an insatiable curiosity about people, and at least as much black humor as technical expertise, Michel Comte is today one of the most sought-after fashion and society photographers of his generation. In the past two decades, Comte has compiled an unparalleled collection of portraits from the world of American show business. His photo shoots of the famous and beautiful, however, by no means define his oeuvre, as seen in this monograph of more than 150 black and white and color photographs. Whenever possible Comte travels the unstable areas of the world with his camera, often on assignment for the International Red Cross. The scenes of poverty and war he has witnessed influence all of his work—humanity and brutality lurk beneath the surface of beauty and affluence in his portraits.
