Bettina Rheims at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie

Bettina Rheims at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie

The gentle and the startling are placed in unexpected juxtaposition in the new exhibition featuring the work of the French photographer Bettina Rheims at the European House of Photography, a venue with which she has been associated more than once. It’s a mirror game which begins when the visitor enters the first room containing these monumental prints that in their scale and tone question the idea of femininity and identity. A maker of bold, provocative and challenging images, Bettina Rheims embraces transgressions and does away with conventions. For over 40 years this brilliant portraitist has presented to the collective consciousness the faces that populate our world. Her subjects are anonymous or famous women, but each is photographed with a similar sense of respect and kindness as the photographer questions, exposes, yet glorifies the female body. On three floors of the European House of Photography some 180 photographs are displayed, showing the creativity of Bettina Rheims from her earliest work to her most recent, including some items never before been seen in France. The entirety forms an emotional journey that is breath-taking in its ambition. JR.
