The Women II by Michel Comte

The Women II by Michel Comte

Michel Comte eschews cheap tricks and thrills and goes straight for that one decisive moment when a woman’s expression and posture reveal her true inner self in his photographs for The Women Series. Michel Comte portrays his subjects with great emotion and intimacy, producing incomparable results in his high fashion photographs. The Women series is a collection of artistic photographs featuring celebrity figures.In ” The Women” Michel Comte features supermodels and actresses alike, that demonstrate what it means to be a modern femme.

Intimate and direct, the viewer is confronted by the assertive demeanor presented through the central composition and neutral background. The passive woman of traditional fashion portraiture is replaced by an iconic image of the modern woman.
