Fantasy wife navigates enigmatic regions of eroticism. Russian oligarch + fearless spouse + French photographer = Sexy! This is French photographer Bettina Rheims' sexiest book ever: daring portraits of a gorgeous woman commissioned by her millionaire husband. First published in a limited edition, this is the popular trade hardcover: now everyone can enjoy Olga! Olga Rodionova is a renowned beauty among Moscow's fashionable jet-set. When her husband, a powerful Russian oligarch, decided to commission her nude photo-portrait, he turned to internationally acclaimed French photographer Bettina Rheims. It was an unusual request for an artist of Rheims' stature but, inspired by Olga's charisma, Rheims set up a shoot in her own country house, creating a series of provocative, intimate images that transcend mere pornography. Delighted by the results, Olga's husband proposed a book project with Olga as its subject. A second shoot followed, with sado-masochistic props and male and female partners playing sex games with Olga. A third, inspired by Marie-Antoinette, took place entirely in the studio. The result is "The Book of Olga", a refreshingly bold, modern and fearless celebration of female beauty, fantasy and sensuality. With over 100 images, and an introduction by controversial French author Catherine Millet, this unique book is both a love poem, and a powerful artistic statement. Following its phenomenal success and media coverage, now available in this trade hardcover edition.
