“Stefan Rappo is the photographer of emotions. He creates subtle and inconspicuous images without ornament or demanding staging: a return to the natural state and the primacy of emotions.”
Stefan Rappo’s nude photography strikes an intriguing note between intimacy and distance. At first, the viewer feels a certain distance, and in the next moment they are entangled in the picture’s tangible tensions and emotions. A longtime assistant to Peter Lindbergh and a renowned portrait photographer, Rappo has found his own nude pictorial language that focuses on the female form—at times drawing on the studio tradition and at others reveling in the body in motion. Nude, Rappo’s first publication, brings together some of his favorite nude photographs, indispensable for those who love nude photography.
