One of the most original and endearing series of nudes ever produced. The images show models looking varyingly seductive, frightened, sleepy and musingly into the camera. Friedlander did not use models in his photographs, but normal, reasonably well-shaped women marked by acne, bruises, fat, varicose veins, moulds and other common flaws. Check out an early Madonna in a few shots before her career took off. Item #7286
