Nudes represents the culmination of 15 years of Friedlander delving into the genre of nude portraiture for the first time. Among the models photographed for the book is a young Madonna, then unknown and going by her birth name. From the publisher: "The photographs are both highly intimate and coolly detached. The frequently surprising perspectives are balanced by the mundane backdrops of ordinary life, the real domestic interiors of the models... He appears to have taken a primary theme of Western art and re-invented it."
