Jackson photos to be sold in Paris
Michael Jackson portraits which have never been published before are set to go under the hammer in Paris.
The 12 portraits were shot by French photographer Arno Bani in 1999.
The singer contacted Arno, only 23 years old at the time, after seeing his fashion photography in a newspaper.
Auctioneer Frederic Chambre said that bidding is expected to start at 1,000 euros (£822) for each portrait and that 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.
One of the pictures, called Michael Jackson's Blue Eye, depicts the late King of Pop with a sad expression and a blue ring around his eye.
