Mädchen in meinen Augen

GUNTER SACHS WAS ONE OF THE
TOP TWELVE PLAYBOYS OF THE
C20TH. *HE WOOED WOMEN ALL
OVER THE WORLD FROM ATHINA ONASSIS (ARISTOTLE'S EX) TO
QUEEN SORAYA OF PERSIA - BOTH BEFORE AND DURING HIS MARRIAGE
TO BRIGITTE BARDOT! HE WAS ALSO
A FANTASTIC PHOTOGRAPHER. WE
HAVE THE PROOF!

Gunter Sachs' 1974 Mädchen in meinen Augen looks a lot like this, but not quite like this. This is a proof copy. The book had a photograph to the cover - no doubt insisted upon by the publisher (with a focus on sales) rather than Sachs (with a tribute to Woody Allen's title sequences in mind).

Quite a combination of curls and light coming through the trees... We like this photo almost as much...

Some of Sachs' models were clearly overwhelmed by the incredibly sexy circumstances they found themselves in! We, of course, are more interested in the pretty in pink styling. Check out the whole book. There is also a soft focus lesbian theme going on!

Sachs may owe something to Sam Haskins and David Hamilton but we imagine he reached his own artistic conclusions on how to photograph women through his own (very) personal experience. He projected a perfect world of sexy and sensual women which just happened to be the one he lived in!

...as we like this one! And before you ask... no, there is no third photograph. It is not quite that kind of book.

As a publisher's proof, each double page is loose bound. There are fifty poster prints. It's a book as an instant exhibition. See what we did with a spare white wall in our office. * For Top 12 see the great quote in this Daily Mail article... can't beat The Mail!
