The association of a pair of sheer stockings with glamour and romance is unmistakable in this tableau, which was shot on location at Melbourne’s Walnut Tree restaurant. Fashion photographer Bruno Benini is the model in the background of this shot. He also modelled for Helmut Newton and Athol Shmith, and commented later: ‘I wasn’t a very good model. I did it so I could learn from them!’
