Scenario: You are a Russian oligarch (so not exactly strapped for cash) with the gorgeous femme fatale of the jet-set hanging off your arm. Proud as you are you don’t settle for anything less than the best, so it has to be Bettina Rheims who shoots a series of your beloved. Olga won over the French photographer who strove to find an aesthetic balance between portrait photography and pornography. The oligarch, impressed by Rheim’s work, proposed she make a book solely comprising of Olga photographs. The result is an exploration of the various ways to record one subject and, it has to be said, one hell of a sexy book.
