Emmanuelle Riva, bubbles and all, by Tiereny Gearon

Tierney Gearon (born 9 September 1963) is an American photographer who became known in Britain after her controversial exhibition at the Staatchi Gallery in 2001. The photos included two naked poses and one of her son urinating in the snow. There were three complaints by members of the public, and the police visited the gallery twice, causing a great deal of media coverage. She shot this portrait of french actress Emmanuelle Riva (whom you know from Haneke’s Amour and Resnais’ Hiroshima mon Amour) for the New York Times for their Hollywood issue in 2012.
