This Collector's Edition includes the book Profile and this print signed and numbered by Jan Welters: Isabella Cosima Jahns, Paris, 2018, Archival pigment print, 20.6 x 27 cm. The photograph has been printed in 2019 in a limited edition of 30 copies.

The picture is part of an editorial story for Italian Marie Claire called "The Performer". The editor Ivana Spernicelli saw Cosima in the Gucci show in Arles, and Welters and the editor agreed to book her after seeing her Instagram feed. She'd done these little videos of herself in her apartement in Rome that they thought were very compelling. She would bend herself over a chair or curl up on the bathroom floor, there was a strange kind of sexyness to them. She had never done any fashion work but turned out to be the perfect girl for our story. The first day they worked in the studio and the second was on location. The weather was ideal, cloudy with a little bit of rain and when Welters asked her to use the wall hoping she would do something interesting she hung from it like she was weightless, floating... It made the whole story come together.
