La femme nue: Julia Galdo, Dominique Issermann

The cover of Nick Cave's new album was shot by Dominique Issermann, with Susie Bick nude. She is being expelled from the white room and seems overwhelmed by it, as once was Eve.

Julia Galdo shows exactly the opposite: a woman guiding a man who seems to be sleeping, a somnambulist, precisely in an open space.

The message between the two images cannot be more radical, and still both images seem to be quite similar, I think, despite the vertical/horizontal compositions.
