Compelling, erotic and personal, Heidi Klum by Rankin, offers a chance to see behind the scenes and under the clothes of model, designer, and personality, Heidi Klum. Originally conceived as a purely personal project, this publication brings together iconic images and never before seen shots to create the most revealing portrait of the international superstar to date.
With photographs taken over a period of ten years, this second solo book project between Rankin and Heidi, explores femininity, sexuality, con dence and strength through the intimacy and humour that has characterised their working relationship.
With an unparalleled rapport between photographer and subject, Rankin's images allow Heidi to strip bare and uncover the fun and the vulnerability that makes her image so recognisable.
