Modem Women's Paris Fall-Winter 2017-2018
Cover by Sonia Sieff
For this edition dedicated to Women’s Fall/Winter 2017-18 collections, Modem is giving “carte blanche” to Sonia Sieff, french photographer and filmmaker, born in Paris in 1979.
The family apartment in the 17th arrondissement houses the studio in which her parents, the photographers Barbara Rix and Jeanloup Sieff, worked. Photography was never a mystery to her, running as it did in her blood. She explores her own creative path through multiple visual disciplines: a photographer on film sets at the age of 20, then a portraitist, she also turned her attention to fashion photography. She contributes to numerous magazines (Vanity Fair, Telegraph, Vogue).
‘Les Françaises’ is her first book.
“ I’m thinking about them. These women – French by birth or adoption – have shared their beauty, animal spirit and sudden exuberances with me. I had no other choice but to approach them intimately, face to face, so that they would undress for me and expose themselves, naked, for you.
No pose, no filter. Retouched, the impression wouldn’t be the same. Au naturel, they reveal their world, their secrets. These are portraits of women, undressed, whom I admire. They could all be sisters or friends” Sonia Sieff
