Tina Brown, former editor-in-chief of The New Yorker, Vanity Fair and bestseller-author, once said: “Regardless whether Michel has a Hollywood celebrity or an orphan from the Third World in front of his lens, he takes both their pictures with the same sincerity and devotion.” The foundation, and ultimately also the secret behind every one of his shoots, is the dialogue between the photographer and his model: Comte’s photographs are never a planned staging, but much more the result of a silent understanding and mutual respect between two people.
