The Swiss photographer Michel Comte, born in 1954, is a master of spontaneity and transformation who is constantly in search of new challenges. In the more than 30 years of his career, he has photographed film stars, supermodels and greats of the jazz and music scenes as well as people at scenes of crisis across the globe. Comte’s photographic eye is as sharp and alert on the red carpets of film festivals and luxury hotels as among the ruins of war zones.

Politicians wrestle with crises as well as with their own public images. By presenting themselves effectively to the public, they hope to gain the voters’ trust and retain political power. However, the importance of political leaders in comparison with the CEOs of multinational corporations – which often have turnovers higher than the budgets of entire nations – is, on the whole, diminishing.
