Kate Moss photo by Mike Figgis

This Mike Figgis shot of Kate Moss descending a staircase in a deserted mansion was part of four short films created in 2007 for the lingerie brand Agent Provocateur.

The films and stills were completed in one night before being put online, where they later caused the website to crash.

The photo comes up at Sotheby’s Made in Britain auction celebrating diversity and creativity in British art in London on March 16. 

It is estimated at (£8,000-12,000). (Copyright Mike Figgis).
