Bettina Rheims started taking pictures at the beginning of the 1980s. Since her first body of work – nudes of strippers undressing in cheap fairs . she has dedicated herself to the exploration of women, famous as well as anonymous. Her first book Female Trouble is a bestseller.
She also worked with marginalised people – Androgynous (in her book Modern Lovers) or Transsexuals (in Kim and Les espionnes). Chambre Close, a series where normal women she found on the street undress in little flowery hotel rooms, is another well-known book. INRI, a photographic interpretation of the life of Jesus Christ (made in collaboration with Serge Bramly) was shown around the world in major museums.
