A groundbreaking, in-depth exploration of the movement and flexibility of the human body, featuring 1,000 stunning black-and-white photographs that showcase the unique collaboration between international supermodel Coco Rocha, “The Queen of Pose,” and world-renowned photographer Steven Sebring.
Supermodel Coco Rocha’s uncanny ability to strike distinctive, camera-ready poses at an astounding speed has earned her international fame throughout the fashion industry—and made her the muse of celebrated photographer Steven Sebring. In Study of Pose, Sebring and Rocha have documented 1,000 unique poses—theatrical, vibrant, elegant, dramatic, and unlike anything the fashion or art worlds have seen before.
“Study of Pose” features Rocha in a simple white leotard—bending, jumping, sitting, standing, and everything in between. The result is a gorgeous and arresting look at the potential of the human form.
“This is my homage to every pose that has influenced me,” Rocha says of the book, “Study of Pose: 1,000 Poses by Coco Rocha”, introduced by French designer Jean Paul Gaultier.
Packaged in a beautiful black case with two black satin bookmarks and a four-color bellyband with French folds, Study of Pose is sure to become an essential reference for Rocha’s millions of fans around the world, as well as all models, artists, photographers, and lovers of art and fashion.
“I wanted to document the human form,” said the photographer, Steven Sebring. “I wanted people to be able to pick up the book and use it as a reference or as an art object.”
But Sebring wanted to take the study one step further, using a 360-degree photography rig to let iPad and tablet users examine a pose from any angle. “I’m hoping it can influence a new generation of artists”, said Rocha.
The Canadian-born supermodel has stepped in front of the camera to create a glossy black and white art book showcasing 1,000 different poses, with inspirations ranging from Botticelli’s Venus to the vampy, voluptuous Jessica Rabbit.
