In September 2014, the French publishing house Les Éditions Denoël commissioned me to produce a press portfolio for Emma Becker, an author of intellectual erotic fiction.
We decided to play around that notion, but avoid being  too ‘in your face’. In this dreamlike photoshoot, Emma is seducing, yet romantic, feminine, yet strong and powerful.
One of the portraits we shot that day became the cover for Emma's then-upcoming second novel, Alice.
Of course, we couldn't help but make a reference to a certain cultural phenomenon.
