Bettina Rheims – Gender Studies
Twenty years after 'Modern Lovers', a body of work on androgyny and transgender created when AIDS was at its peak, Bettina Rheims now presents 'Gender Studies'. In the light of current controversial debates on gender theory, Rheims’s models display remarkable courage by questioning, modifying and celebrating their identities.
Bettina Rheims was born in Paris in 1952 and began photographing in the early 1980s. Since her first body of work, 'Female Trouble' (1980–89), Rheims has dedicated herself to the exploration of women, famous and not, and marginalized people.
