Head Shot: Glamour, grief and getting on with it

Victoria Nixon (Author)
Available

Description

A girl from a Yorkshire mining town is barely thirteen when her father kills himself - her brother finds him dying. At sixteen she's spotted by a rock star and becomes an international Vogue model. Seven years later her brother kills himself in her New York apartment and her mother dies too. With no family left, her life is now one of extreme choices.

Fifty years later, Victoria confronts her past and takes her readers on an unflinching voyage through her experiences as a model and beyond. Speaking frankly about loss, love, friendship and ambition, Head Shot is a book of inspiration and purpose.

Packed with astonishing images by the photographers Victoria worked with, and the defiant fashions she wore throughout her career, it also bears witness to a time of unparalleled cultural energy and invention; it's a story in which bags and shoes can, and do, sit right next to life and death.
