Publisher's Description
Ceci n'est pas un livre, ceci n'est pas un film... Bettina Rheims and Serge Bramly's' Rose, c'est Paris 'is both a photographic monograph and a feature-length film on DVD. This extraordinary work of art, in two different but interlocking and complimentary formats, defies easy categorization. For in this multi-layered opus of poetic symbolism, photographer Bettina Rheims and artist Serge Bramly evoke the City of Light in a completely novel way: this is a Paris of surrealist visions, confused identities, artistic phantoms, unseen manipulation, obsession, fetish, and seething desire. Equal parts erotica, fashion shoot, art monograph, metaphysical mystery, social and cultural archaeology of the French capital, and neo-noir arthouse film-'Rose, c'est Paris' is all this and more. In a surrealistic inversion of the oft-imitated 1954 Parisian photobook by Ed van Elsken, 'Love On The Left Bank, 'this mesmerising work is the meandering tale of twin sisters, known only as B and R, and a third principal-the city itself. When R returns to their apartment and learns that B has been abducted following a violent struggle, a dreamlike detective story unfolds in black and white on the streets, in the cafes and cabarets, groceries and museums,' ' 'usines abondonees, ' and 'grands hotels' of Paris. Hardcover book, DVD with booklet and other objects are presented in a suitcase.
