Veruschka was born in 1936 in eastern Prussia as the distinguished Vera Gottliebe Anna Gräfin von Lehndorff- Steinort. After being discovered as a model at age twenty whilst studying art in Hamburg, the bookings soon petered out. In 1964 Vera came up with a new name, the Russian Veruschka. Complete with a new and mysterious image the world was her oyster. The coffee table book documents Veruschka’s career including work from Richard Avedon, Scavullo, Irving Penn and Steven Meisel. A true homage to a supermodel who made a significant impact on the worlds of fashion and photography.
