BETTINA RHEIMS AND SERGE BRAMLEY’S  “ROSE C’EST PARIS” Bettina Rheims and Serge Bramly’s “Rose C’est Paris” is both a photographic monograph and a feature-length film on DVD. This extraordinary work of art, in two different but interlocking and complimentary formats, defies easy categorization.

Equal parts erotica, fashion shoot,... Read More
