Synopsis: Bettina is back: 35 years of daring, defiant photography

Since her first photographs in the late ’70s, Bettina Rheims has defied 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 Rheims retrospective showcases more than 500 photographs from 35 years of daring, often defiant, photography. Personally selected and assembled by Rheims, the collection juxtaposes renowned series such as Chambre Close, Héroïnes, and Rose, c’est Paris with many previously unpublished archival pictures and entries from Rheims’s own “diaries,” detailing behind-the-scenes work and personal memories.

Spanning commercial work and artistic series, the retrospective impresses with each turn of the page, as much for the vigor of each image as for the thrilling variety of Rheims’s subjects and aesthetics. With equal attention to anonymous subjects cast in the street as to such global beauty stars as Kate Moss, Madonna, Monica Bellucci, Claudia Schiffer, and Naomi Campbell, the book showcases Rheims’s particular interest in female fragility and strength, and of the magic encounter between model and artist which disrupts codes of so-called eroticism to build up a new image system for womanhood.

First published as a limited edition - now available in a popular TASCHEN edition!

Book Description TASCHEN, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: NEUF. Cette rétrospective de l'oeuvre de Rheims retrace en plus de 500 photos 35 années d'une carrière de photographe provocante et rebelle. Choisie et composée par Bettina Rheims elle-même, la sélection mêle séries iconiques, comme Chambre Close, Héroïnes et Rose, c'est Paris et clichés inédits extraits de ses archives, et s'accompagne de notes du "journal intime" de l'artiste retraçant ses souvenirs personnels et dévoilant l'envers du décor de ses images.Alternant entre photos de mode et séries artistiques, cette rétrospective frappe, page après page, par la force de chaque image tout autant que par la diversité des sujets et de l'esthétique de Rheims. Traitant avec une attention égale des femmes inconnues abordées dans la rue ou des stars internationales telles que Kate Moss, Madonna, Monica Bellucci, Claudia Schiffer, Charlotte Rampling ou encore Naomi Campbell, le livre révèle le regard particulier que Bettina Rheims porte sur la fragilité comme sur la puissance des femmes, ainsi que la rencontre magique entre une artiste et son modèle, qui brisent l'une comme l'autre les codes d'un soi-disant "érotisme" pour construire une nouvelle image de la féminité.Après l'édition limitée, voici l'édition courante TASCHEN! - Nombre de page(s) : 598 - Poids : 4906g - Genre : Universitaire, ouvrages de références, Essais, Livres en langue étrangère.
