All round artist: set designer, painter, journalist, and photographer;
in 1979 Bettina Rheims leaft everything behind to dedicate herself
solely to a camera lens, investigating the feminine universe, its
subjects and interpreters.
Acrobats, strip-tease artists, androgynous teenagers, modern lovers and heroines; encounters that in the last thirty years have marked her success all over the world.
For the first Italian solo show in a private space, ProjectB presents thirteen photographs of Just like a woman (2008), the series of works trying to capture the intimate essence of young women.
Bettina Rheims says of her works 'what I do is quite strange' where the photographic genesis derives from a careful construction both intellectual and visual resulting from a meticulous production, in which nothing is left to chance without detracting anything from the spontaneity of the shot.
Bettina Rheims is represented in Italy by ProjectB Contemporary Art
