Renée Jacobs is one of the most celebrated photographers of the female nude of our time. Recipient of the prestigious International Photography Award for Fine Art Nude, her work has been exhibited and published around the world. Jacobs, an American, now lives with her wife in the glorious mountains west of Montpellier.
GALERIE EDITION VEVAIS (Berlin) is proud to announce pre-sales are now open for the long-awaited second edition of Renée Jacobs’ PARIS. Just in time for Pride Month, Galerie Vevais now offers both Renée Jacobs’ PARIS and POLAROIDS for pre-sale, celebrating the broad sexual spectrum of women today.
Galerie Vevais publisher Alexander Scholz states: “This book is the very example of a photographer who has a social vision of freedom, dreams and liberty. Her subjects give Renée their trust and the result is a collaborative journey which fulfills fantasies and most importantly expresses the power of uninhibited women in the City of Love.”
As photo historian Professor John Wood states in the introduction to PARIS: “The sexual drive is sacred—but above all it is personal...Jacobs’ depiction of femininity is both an ancient and a modern one of women as free spirit-as free as any man. Like Romaine Brooks, Jacobs presents formal elegance, desire and beauty all coupled within the allure of sexual magic.”
As Jacobs explains: “PARIS for me represents joy, fearlessness, love and friendship. For so long women have been told to hide their sexuality or pretend it doesn’t exist; not to own the pride and power behind it. I make no apologies for the eroticism of the women in my photos. We’re collaborating to make these images for us. I’m not interested in masking sexuality. I am interested in revealing it and reveling in all its diverse glory.”
The 2nd Edition will be approximately 17x24cm, 140 pages and include some new photos. It will be available as both a limited edition of 400 signed and numbered copies in softcover with a mounted picture on the cover and as a hardbound with linen cover, with a mounted picture on the cover and an additional pigment print in an edition of 100 signed and numbered copies.
