Just before the book was published by Rizzoli this past February 2017, Sonia and I met in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for a few days of laughs, food and wine, during an uncharacteristically warm New York winter. I started shooting pictures when I was 17. Now, how does photography connect to the digital world for you? American actress Spider-Man: Homecoming 2017 and model Laura Harrier nude in Sonia Sieff photoshoot 2017 American Actress Laura Harrier Nude In Sonia Sieff Photoshoot 2017 Laura Harrier is an American actress and model. But more than before we desperately need pictures that stay, books to look at.
The two ladies were a piece of literature telling their story as they lived it. Photography is instantaneous, a clic clac in the silence, a second in a life. We pretended it was spring.

At dinner I met a young neophyte fashion photographer and her beautiful accomplice, an actress whom she traveled with that day from Paris to Italy, to shoot nudes using the resplendent architectural landscape of Milan as environmental fodder. My personal story has a terrible echo to what is now happening in the world. So it felt like the perfect moment to visit Sonia at her own home and tell us a bit more about the intimate moments she captured in her book… Above: These are personal pictures on my wall. My father was Ashkenazi Jew who came from Poland and escaped by miracle from the camps and the Gestapo by crossing France as he was ten years old, on a bicycle under a fake name. And a picture at the cafe de flore I took. If you like bodies, you like nudes.
As a writer for BlackBook I have lived between the cities of New York, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Paris, London, and Milan. It was no small achievement. You live in Paris and Normandy, does the political landscape of the world, the move toward conservatism and the right, impact your work? The photographs capture the sensuality of The French and the author. We had to adapt ourselves to this new technology.
There for the shows, to write a few fashion stories for BlackBook, I was staying in a quaint offbeat boutique hotel. Everything is really linked to each other. Eight years past, while in Milan during fashion week I met Sonia Sieff. Digital has brought a lot, democratized photography as well as social media. The daughter of two photographers, including the legendary portrait artist , she has experienced the blessing and the curse of following in the footsteps of a famous parent. We are following what Trump has started destroying, and Brexit in the U.
Your father was famous for his nudes and your first book are nudes. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the American University in London. Harrier was first recognized for her portrayal of Destiny Evans in the short-lived reboot of the American soap opera One Life to Live in 2013. We didn't retouch the bodies at all. I had also the chance to have amazing and wonderful friends who inspired me.
De La Baume is member of French indie band Singtank with her brother Alexandre de la Baume and drummer Alberto Cabrera. I had the chance to be raised in an inspiring world. It is that same feeling of creating a real life story, sans pretense, that drives Sonia in her personal and professional life. Beyond a cultured life, this is relevant because my existence has been mostly in apartment dwellings. Is there a story to your work, a philosophical idea, something that ties life, art, creativity, work, etc, all together? I wanted to picture the women I admire in their world. De La Baume has been acting since 2003.
Her ability to make you feel both welcome and in awe of her at the same time is a characteristic that ultimately drew me back in. In 2017, she will have her major film debut, portraying Liz Allan, in Spider-Man: Homecoming. My friend would not take no for an answer and I was persuaded to join. Yes, I believe it is running in my blood! My mother is German and emigrated to France at 20. Why and when did you start shooting pictures? Many great photographers, we do not go in only one direction. And at the same time we were very strong as a family, loving to exchange ideas and our works.
She nails nudity as an art and the female body as an inspiration. She is known for her role as Renée Rienne on the fifth and final season of the television show Alias and for playing Maïté Alvarez in the film Wild Reeds. Is there an idea behind the book, why have you made it? We strongly need to react and create a voice against the dangerous leaders who are creating struggles in our world. I have started by giving my voice to feminism, by participating in debates, podcasts, preparing documentaries to show another way. The vulnerable women in the book are all friends of Sonia, which makes it personal.
