Portrait Photography by Michel Comte

Michel Comte

Michel Comte was born in 1954 in Zurich, Switzerland. The professionally trained art restorer approached photography autodidactically. In 1978 Comte receives his first international assignments: advertising photographs for the Paris-based fashion houses of Ungaro and Chloé.

Work for the American Vogue lead him to New York in 1981; later, he takes up residence in Los Angeles. "I always have to live on the edge", Comte states on his restless persona. "If I no longer have a sense of risk, I immediately move on. I probably inherited that from my grandfather." (Swiss aviator Alfred Comte).
