Emily Ratajkowski’s NFT to “Reclaim Her Image”
29-year-old model Emily Ratajkowski has joined the growing list of celebrities taking advantage of the benefits of NFTs. According to her, she has sold her body to photographers in the past 15 years, and so the NFT can help her gain control over her images.
In a step toward my ongoing effort to reclaim and control my image, I’m thrilled to announce my first conceptual artwork to ever come to market, an NFT entitled Buying Myself Back: A Model for Redistribution.

Ratajkowski had bought into the idea of minting the NFTs so that the owner of the image would be traced back to her regardless of who possesses it. The new owner of the NFT still has to go by the control of Ratajkowski, and above all, she gets a share of any secondary sales.
