The publication’s title is taken from a main subject within the book, a woman named Rie, whose name aptly translates as ‘truth’ and ‘picture’.

The book follows a poetic narrative embarking “on an inherently female dialogue on the subject of revealing,” says Lena whose photography consistently presents a fresh view of femininity. “I was interested in understanding at what point when we reveal our bodies as women to a potential other, does the apparent vulnerability cross over into appreciation of the powerful notion of being naked and being oneself without an inner or outer surveyor present.” On the experience of creating the monograph Lena explains that, “watching Rie and the other nine women that I photographed, all of which were strangers to me and each other at the time and who had never been photographed in this way before, come to life as they slowly shed each layer of artifice, felt incredibly reassuring'.
