Photo: DR

Legendary maker of icons Bettina Rheims began taking photos in the early 80s. Her glamorous portraits of stars, artists and models are immediately recognizable and intensely unforgettable: they line our memory like sublime snapshots of the times. Through interviews with famous models and the photographer herself, and visits to her studio and gallery exhibits, this film takes an exclusive look at Rheims' unique, complex work and vision—and while doing so turns the camera around to offer a revealing portrait of our time.
