The “je t’aime” series is a tribute to Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, idols of the exciting 60s/70s in which I was cradled. The series was born out of an editorial shoot at the Karl Lagerfeld villa for Leica S magazine, which, in cooperation with a record company, came up with the idea of having photographers visualize songs. The song “Je t’aime” is unthinkable without Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg. It fits in perfectly with my visual universe, and has lost none of its appeal to me to this day,” explains Esther Haase of the artwork.

“We are particularly pleased to be working with Esther Haase. Her work is appreciated and admired in many photographic genres. Her editions are usually very limited, and we’re very proud to be able to work together to make one of her works available to a wider audience for the first time,” says Alexander Nieswandt, founder and CEO of WhiteWall.
