Michael Jackson - Jackson Photos Sell For $265,000

A collection of MICHAEL JACKSON photographs have sold for more than $265,000 (£176,667) at auction in Paris, France.
The snaps were taken in 1999 by French photographer Arno Bani as the pop superstar attempted to revamp his image ahead of the release of his 2001 album Invincible.
A number of the Bani shots had been intended as the record's artwork, but other pictures were chosen instead.
The photographs were sold off in 90 lots on Monday (13Dec10) and the collection raised more than $265,000 (£176,667).
The top-selling item was a picture of the singer in a Pharaoh-style pose - bare-chested and wearing a golden cape - which fetched a massive $34,880 (£23,253).

I have a copy of the catalog of the auction photos and I must say I prefer the photos that were used for Michael's Invincible album more than these. These are 'art' and highly stylized and air-brushed to death and depict MJ in different roles rather than as himself. They are interesting, artistic curiosities. I guess the photographer has made a packet for himself from their sale... hope he donates some of it to charity. MJ would have.
