Michael Jackson Photos to Be Auctioned in Paris

Wednesday, 23 Jun 2010 07:02 AM

 

A Paris auction house says it plans to put 12 never-before-published portraits of Michael Jackson on the block in December.

The portraits were shot by French photographer Arno Bani in 1999. One of them, called "Michael Jackson's Blue Eye," depicts Jackson with a sad expression and a blue ring around his eye.

Jackson contacted Bani, only 23 years old at the time, after seeing his fashion photography in a newspaper.

Auctioneer Frederic Chambre said Tuesday that the bidding is expected to start at euro1,000 ($1,228) for each portrait. Chambre said the images could not be displayed before because of copyright issues.

Auctioneers Pierre Berge Associes will put the photos on the block, along with 50 contact boards.
