A new retrospective of French photographer Bettina Rheim's work captures her focus on the female form and emphasis on sexually charged exhibitionism.

From nudes and black-and-white images of anonymous Parisian prostitutes, to staged and enticing poses of portraits of Madonna, Catherine Deneuve and Milla Jovovich - Rheims provocative signature echoes that of iconic lensman Helmut Newton, whose influence is clearly visible in much of her work. 
In addition, her series on view also includes an exploration of how she has witnessed transgender culture and identity evolve.

The complete retrospective is on now and runs until March 27 at Paris's Maison Européenne de la Photographie, featuring 180 images spanning her work from 1979 to the present day.

GARY NUMAN: ANDROID IN LALA LAND TRAILER



Electro pop pioneer, Gary Numan, is to premiere his documentary '
Android in LaLa Land' at this year's SXSW Film Festival next month.
Described by former Loaded magazine art director Steve Read, as "the most extraordinary access to one of the most extraordinary artists in the world today. It is as up close and personal as it gets", the intimate film follows Numan's rollercoaster ride with fame, his family's move from the UK to LA, returning to the studio and being out on the road, and his battles with depression, anxiety and near bankruptcy.

"It's like, imagine you're standing at a train station and this express train comes flying through, and you put your hand out and you grab it and it whisks you away at lightning speed and everything is a blur. Then, at some point, you lose your grip, and you find yourself in the middle of nowhere, a bit beaten up and totally lost", says Numan on camera.

Watch the official trailer for the film below.

Upcoming in LA next month is 'Skinhead Archive', an exhibition showcasing original source material from the book by artist and punk historian Toby Mott.

Designed by Jamie Reid, the book explores the original iteration of skinhead, revivalism in the late 70s and 80s, the fascist interpretation, the socialist counterpoint, queer skinhead culture, exploitation literature and skin girls. It also includes texts from writers and filmmakers such as Bruce la Bruce, who co-edited the queer punk zine J.D.s in the mid-eighties.

The exhibition, also curated by Mott, offers an opportunity to see items from his rare collection, showcasing zines, posters and other vital ephemera from one of the most controversial, provocative and radical subcultural movements.

SKINHEAD ARCHIVE: The Mott Collection runs from 13th February to 12th March at Lethal Amounts, 1226 W 7th St, Los Angeles.
