Sam Haskins' nude photography won him the numerous awards, including the 1964 Prix Nadar, the 1974 One Show Gold Medal in NY, and the 1980 Kodak book of the Year. November Girl (1966) contains key image collages which inspired many graphic and surrealist experiments in the 1970s and 80s, and it formed a basis for Haskins later work, such as African Image (1967), a visual homage to the indigenous people of sub-saharan Africa.
