Sam Haskins has the exceptional ability to photograph women with sensitivity, good taste, anda dash of humor. "White as flowers, warm as sunshine, wild as whiskey, and swinging like a lamp," is our introduction to the gun toting Cowboy Kate. The book follows Cowboy Kate through her allegorical experiences in a rough and tough western town. It uses a mixture of fun and hyperbole to make its point about the triumph of young, wholesome, innocent beauty. Haskins' photographs exploit every subtle gradation of grayscale with unparalleled mastery; he has absolute control and an unerring sense of design. Acknowledged or not, few photographers have been as influential as Haskins. His photographs have been emulated by countless contemporary fashion photographers-from Steven Meisel to Nick Knight. In addition to countless fashion stories, Madonna's controversial Sex book was largely influenced by Cowboy Kate.
