EMILY RATAJKOWSKI 'COLLECTORS EDITION'.
In May 2012, photographer Jonathan Leder found himself alone in a house with a Polaroid camera and Emily Ratajkowski. This was before the black-haired, red-lipped stunner had shot to fame with her undeniably sexy performance in Robin Thicke’s arguably sexist “Blurred Lines” video. Leder wasn’t shooting her because she was a celebrity. He’d simply seen something in her previous work that made him think this L.A. model wasn’t like all the others.
He was right, and the proof lies in Leder/Ratajkowski, a book of supernaturally sensual photos published by Imperial Publishing. The collector’s edition spans 71 images . Posing in lingerie (and less) on floral rugs, plush sofas, and big brass beds, Ratajkowski is a vintage pin-up queen with a 21st Century edge.
Leder took these Polaroids at the Cape House in Woodstock, N.Y., a classically styled pad reminiscent of childhood vacation rentals, maybe even grandma’s house. The familiarity of the curtains and wood paneling makes each captured moment feel all the more alluring.
