Yesterday we got our first look at a series of pictures taken by David LaChapelle, which were being put up for auction at Christie’s. The photos were originally taken for a Rolling Stone article Angelina Jolie did back in 2000. The picture from yesterday had never been seen before, but these have seen the light of day before. The unseen photo will be part of “The Wild Side of Photography” auction in May.
A beautiful picture of a carefree Angelina Jolie posing with a white horse will lead a sale of photographs at London auction house Christie’s next month. The never-before-seen image by celebrated photographer David LaChapelle is expected to fetch between £25,000 and £35,000 when it goes under the hammer as part of The Wild Side of Photography sale.
The colour snap from 2001 features the actress as a 25-year-old throwing back a mane of brunette hair and showing off some of her many tattoos, including a ‘Billy Bob’ drawing on her arm, a homage to her then husband which has now been erased.
The photograph of the 37-year-old actress will go on sale alongside a black and white print of Angelina and Brad Pitt posing as husband and wife for Steven Klein in 2005. The black and white image was taken as part of a shoot that the couple appeared in for W magazine before they were officially an item and is expected to to fetch £8,000-12,000.
Both pictures are part of the Contemporary section of the sale that is highlighted by four works by controversial American photographer LaChapelle.
Christie’s claim that this is ‘an opportunity for discerning collectors around the world to acquire photographs with remarkable provenance.’
She looks beautiful in these pictures. It’s back when she had a little meat on her body. She looks so much more beautiful with curves.
