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.
Born in 1972, Stefan Rappo is a photographer from Plaffeien, Switzerland. At the age of 30 he quit his job making heavy forestry equipment to study photography in the South of France. Afterwards he moved to Paris and worked as a photo assistant for Camilla Akrans, Bruno Aveillan, and Peter Lindbergh, with whom he worked for over seven years. In parallel, he developed his own projects, including staged cinematic photo stories, portraits, and female nude photographs.
