BETTINA RHEIMS (Trade Edition)

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the collection juxtaposes renowned series such as Chambre Close, Héroïnes, and Rose, c’est Paris with many previously unpublished archival images and entries from Rheims’s own “diaries”, detailing behind-the-scenes work and personal memories.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 strength 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 celebrities such 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.

> French artist Bettina Rheims has produced numerous major photographic series, which have been exhibited all over the world. Her books include Female Trouble (1989), Modern Lovers (1990), Chambre Close (1994), I.N.R.I. (1998), Shanghai (2003), More Trouble (2004), Héroïnes (2007), The Book of Olga (2008 for TASCHEN), Rose, c’est Paris (2010 for TASCHEN) and Gender Studies (2014).

> Patrick Remy has authored several publications and launched two book series, namely Fashion Images de Mode and Strip/Paradise/Desire/Sensation (Steidl). He has also published a number of photographers’ monographs and organized several fashion photography exhibitions, in particular in Miami, Tokyo, and Melbourne. He lives and works in Paris.
