Signed and Numbered by the Photographer. Before she was a controversial video vixen, a celebrated Hollywood actress, an international runway sensation, and a feminist lightning rod, Emily Ratajkowski was an aspiring L. Model taking jobs her agency recommended. Thats what brought her to Woodstock, N. For two fateful daysand more importantly nightsin May 2012. It was then she met photographer Jonathan Leder, who shot the 103 seductive Polaroids featured in Ratajkowski, the luxurious new photo book from Imperial Publishing. Posing in white nighties, black lingerie, and often nothing at all, Ratajkowski exudes both the playful sexuality shed bring to Robin Thickes Blurred Lines video and the dramatic sensuality shed harness for David Finchers 2014 psychological thriller Gone Girl. Features new high-resolution scans, and is bound in a lush 130lb cover, and a at a 9 x 11print size is perfect for showcasing Leders artistry and the smoldering sex appeal of his soon-to-be-famous subject. Theres also a brand-new foreword by art historian Susan Rothschild, who paraphrases the words of philosopher Alexander Nehamas: The only reaction appropriate to beauty is love; the desire to possess it. In his afterword, Leder recalls noticing something enchanting about the girl who stepped off the bus on Woodstocks village green, though he never guessed he was dealing with a future superstar. She was well dressed and attractive, perhaps a bit more petite than your average model, Leder writes.
But once he took her back to the small cape-style house hed rented for the summer, something extraordinary happened. Leders photos reveal the strong confident young woman who clearly feels comfortable to be herself and have some fun. Shes got the pouty red lips and come-hither glances youd expect from a beautiful young model hired to seduce the camera, and yet Ratajkowski gives Leder something unique. Expertly positioned on vintage floral rugs and furniture that evokes childhood vacation memories, Ratajkowski is a midcentury pin-up queen with a millennial edge. Forget that fools errand of trying to possess beauty.
Leders photos of Ratajkowski perform a different sort of magic trick. They preserve for all eternity an intimate moment between two people that can never be recreated.
