Michel Comte @Milan Triennale



Today it was the first relaxed Sunday I had in a month or so and I was exactly in the mood to go and visit some inspiring exhibition. I was lucky because this month Milan Triennale is hosting “Michel Comte. Crescendo fotografico”, an awesome exhibition which retraces the career of one of the best contemporary fashion and portrait photographers, definitely worth a visit. 
The show includes 87 images and 20 collages, each one of them is composed of test images taken from various rolls that give an overall vision of the complexity of Comte’s work before he is happy with a final shot. The selection of the images in the exhibition is fabulous and provides a broader demonstration of the photographer’s work: not just his famous fashion advertising campaigns, but also black-and-white portraits.
Here I post some of my fav shots that I grabbed there. 
Don’t miss it if it happens that you are in Milan!

  1. Really beautiful work. I love seeing contact sheets of photographers, it really let's the viewer understand the process and editing it take for one shot, and they just look so cool!

    If you are interested, here are some black and white film prints I scanned this weekend of Rome, Berlin, Venice and Naples :) http://www.flickr.com/photos/salsapark/sets/72157626773093804/

  31. Gorgeous work. A lot of the shots are very raw and dark, kind of like candids midway through a filthy arthouse film.
