RASMUSSEN, Matilde Soes. Unprofessional.
(Copenhagen, Denmark): Disko Bay, 2021. First edition. Quarto. 239 pages. Through photography and text, Gothenburg-based artist Matilde Soes Rasmussen explores her time as a professional model. Having spent ten years in this role, she now turns her attention to questioning its power structures, beauty ideals, and objectification. ‘Unprofessional’ is a hybrid book that moves between documentary and fiction, performance and life, wherein she uses her own body to investigate how these structures impact self-image and identity. It is an attempt to find meaning in a career as a model, as an ever-changing character, and as something that is constantly being assessed, bought, sold, and admired. Rasmussen has decided to photograph back. A near fine copy in boards without dust jacket as issued. Published in an edition of 600 copies.
