Dorothee von Rechenberg, ‘secrets #2’, 2003-2015, DAS ESSZIMMER

The photographs „secrets“ result from a research of very old rituals belonging the relation between nature and human beings.
This small series shows a woman with an apple between her legs. The ritual is thought to soak the apple with her body perfumes to make her beloved falling in love with her.
