Haskins' seminal sixties classics, which include the groundbreaking Cowboy Kate, are landmarks in the history of photography, as revered today as they were when first published forty years ago. In Cowboy Kate, a lyrical tale of the triumph of youth played out by cowgirls of the old west, Haskins reinvented the genre of the nude with stunningly well-executed photographs, a cinematic approach, and a subtly engaging narrative. Often copied but rarely equaled, Haskins has an exceptional ability to photograph women with a sensitivity that has won him accolades from men and women alike. The "Director's Cut" is revised to include new and previously unpublished photographs.

"Cowboy Kate and other stories by Sam Haskins is one sexy coffee table book." -- 12/15/06 BRAVO TV
"The update gives new life to the Haskins's enchanting and grainy ode to the female form, making it a must-have for photography and fashion lovers alike". -- Mar07 DEPARTURES
"When photographer Sam Haskins published his most famous book, Cowboy Kate and Other Stories, in 1964, it was a pioneering work, blending an extended visual narrative with an artful use of black-and-white tones and subtly erotic, peek-a-boo nudity. First published in Europe, the book sold out several international editions, went out of print in the late 1960s, and became prized as a collector's item."
But this fall Cowboy Kate is back: Rizzoli has brought out a "Director's Cut" version of the book, complete with digitally restored plates and several never-seen images that Haskins has added to the mix. American Photo recently talked with the 81-year-old photographer -- who began his career in London and now lives in Australia -- about the new Cowboy Kate, modern times, and his varied career in photography -- Oct06 PHOTO DISTRICT NEWS
-- "...remains one of the most coveted, collected and influential photography books of the swinging '60s...includes previously unpublished photographs selected by Haskins himself." -- Nov06 PAPERCITY MAGAZINE HOUSTON
American Photo's David Schonauer writes, "My second award goes to New York magazine, (cover date: August 28), which ran a brilliant fashion feature on page 76, shot by the famed 1960s photographer Sam Haskins. The story is called "Honey, Can I Borrow This?" and it's about men's clothes that chic women like to wear. The images are sexy, sophisticated, and in a class by themselves. Congratulations to photography director Jody Quon. See Haskins's pictures here.Incidentally, this fall Rizzoli books is bringing out a new version of Haskin's famed book Cowboy Kate and Other Stories. First published in 1964, the original is now a pricey collectors item. The new version is called a "Director's Cut," and it's priced at $45". -- Sep06 NEW YORK MAGAZINE
