With Paris and its interiors as a frequent backdrop, Sonia Sieff gives readers an intimate portrait of some of France s most recognizable faces. From fashion models to writers and ballet dancers, Sieff captures the distinct personality of each while also depicting a unique sense of place. Beautifully staged and artfully shot, this book goes beyond Sieff s previous commercial work that has gained attention from the public eye and focuses on her fascination with the female form. With more than 150 stunning photographs of Sieff s subjects in Paris, in their homes, on the shores of Normandy, and in the gardens of Champagne, Les Francaises exhibits Sieff s undeniable ability to capture the beauty of the female form while at once offering an intimate glimpse into the world these women inhabit. With work reminiscent of her father Jeanloup Sieff s pioneering fashion photography, this book will appeal to lovers of provocative fashion, art, and photography.
