Emily Ratajkowski Slams Book of Nude Photos As a 'Violation'

Posted on

Emily Ratajkowski thinks one of her former photographers is crossing a not-so-blurred line.

Jonathan Leder, who photographed the model-turned-actress back in 2012, is releasing a new book full of never-before-seen nude and semi-nude pictures from the shoot. On Wednesday, Ratajkowski took to social media to speak out against the photographer and his new book, which she says is being released without her permission.

“I’ve been resisting speaking publicly on the recently released photos by Jonathan Leder to avoid giving him publicity. But I’ve had enough,” she wrote on Twitter.

“This book and the images within them are a violation,” she continued.

The pictures come from a photoshoot Leder and Ratajkowski did together four years ago, before her rise to fame following her appearance in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video. The photographs, all taken with a Polaroid camera, were shot at the Cape House in Woodstock, New York, and feature the model in various positions and stages of undress.

But according to the actress, those photos were never meant to be seen by the public. “5 out of the now 100s of released photos were used for what they were intended: an artful magazine shoot back in 2012,” she explained on Twitter.

“These photos being used w/out my permission is an example of exactly the opposite of what I stand for: women choosing when and how they want to share their sexuality and bodies,” she added.

Leder did not immediately return a request for comment.
