Bettina Rheims Art Edition Book from Taschen publishing features her first photographs from the late ’70s, unclassifiable, 35 years of daring, defiant photography. Defying the predictable, from her series on Pigalle strippers (1980) to her cycle on the life of Jesus in I.N.R.I. (1998), from Chanel commercials to Gender Studies (2011), her work has shaken up traditional iconography and pushed restlessly at the breaking point between two great human preoccupations: beauty and imperfection.
This limited Art Edition book pairs the pigment print Lara, January 2008 with a volume of more than 500 photographs. Personally selected and assembled by Rheims, the collection juxtaposes renowned series such as Chambre Close with previously unpublished archival pictures. A companion volume assembles press cuttings, behind-the-scenes material, and traces her illustrious career. With equal attention to anonymous subjects cast in the street as to global beauty stars as Kate Moss, Madonna, Monica Bellucci, and Naomi Campbell, the book showcases Rheims’ interest in female fragility and strength, and the magic encounter between model and the artist which disrupts codes of eroticism to build up a new image system for womanhood.
Limited Art Edition of 100 signed and numbered copies, each with the print Lara, January 2008, Paris. C-print on Kodak RC Satin paper, signed and dated by photographer Bettina Rheims on the back, paper size: 30 x 40 cm (11,8 x 15,7 in.) (No. 1–100).
