Photographer Renée Jacobs on female power, sexuality and reclaiming the nude

Video (12:00): The female nude dates back to the very beginning of art, but it remains a contested symbol. American photographer Renée Jacobs speaks to Eve Jackson (France 24) about reclaiming it and using it as a form of queer and feminist activism. Jacobs’ photo books are entitled “Paris” and “Polaroids” and her exhibition “Dreams & Desires” is being shown at the Sinner hotel in Paris through December 11, 2022.
