Esther Haase's multi-layered work combines the joy of photography and, above all, the staging of people and fashion. As a creative director, Esther Haase reveals a wide range of emotions in her work, from empathy to eroticism, creating an image of the self-confident woman.

The series, "je t'aime" is a tribute to Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, idols of the exciting 60's/70's I was born into. The series was created as an editorial shoot at the Karl Lagerfeld Villa for the Leica S Magazine, who in cooperation with a record label had the idea to have songs visualized by photographers*. The song "Je t'aime" is unthinkable without Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg. It fits perfectly into my visual imagination and has not lost its appeal for me to this day.
