London, (ANI): Nude black and white photographs of supermodel Kate Moss are to go under the hammer. Over a dozen photographs were taken in 1993 in Marrakech and are likely to fetch up to 30,000 pounds when they are sold on Friday.
The pictures that show the supermodel crouching on sand come in the form of the photographer's 'contact sheet". Photographer Albert Watson shot Moss without clothes or jewellery when she was in her late teens.
"Albert Watson is a famed photographer," the Telegraph quoted Alexander Montague-Sparey, photography expert from Christie's auction house which is selling the photos, as saying.
"He is known for his work in black and white and these photographs have a golden quality to them which makes them very attractive. There is a contact sheet with 14 photographs and they are very large for contact sheet photos. There was another print from this shoot which was enlarged and sold for 50,000 pounds.
"The photographs are like looking through a keyhole into an intimate moment and they draw you in. There is an intimacy between the photographer and his muse. She is crouching trying to hide as much of her body as possible. There are those who collect Watson photographs and Kate Moss is very commercial and they are a safe investment," he added.
