Madonna (Sex Book making off)


quote [Many of the photos in the book Sex are from film frames. Madonna had photographer Steven Meisel shoot many of the sessions with regular photography, but these same sessions were also shot as a movie with various film techniques by fashion photographer Fabian Baron, mostly on super 8 mm. Baron used the footage for the video for the song "Erotica," which he directed. Madonna and Baron compiled an hour of the footage for a film that Madonna had played during a party she gave for the release of Sex at New York City's Industria Superstudio. Madonna also had 100 copies of the film made to give to her closest friends. This film boasted a soundtrack of French music from the 1920s and '30s of songs by such singers as Charles Trenet, Edith Piaf, and Josephine Baker. At some point in the early to mid-1990s, this film leaked out to the public, and for a time copies of it were sold as The Sex Book Video or as The Making of Sex and Erotica in versions with variations in editing and soundtrack. Featured in the video, are model Naomi Campbell, actress Isabella Rossellini...].
