Photographer Michel Comte must be pleased with all the attention this image is getting him considering it’s the tame one of the bunch. The Swiss photographer shot Carla Bruni when she was still a fashion model—back in 1993—and not the wife of current French President Nicolas Sarkozy. The black and white being auctioned at Christie’s next month and is expected to sell for about $4000 bucks. Although the shutterbug doesn’t know how the photo he took at the end of a session for Italian Vogue made it to auction, Comte isn’t worried, even claiming that’s he’s got a whole lot more where those came from, “I have other nude photographs of Carla far more explicit, but I would never sell them.” |AFP|
