    'Watson created probably two of the most iconic images of Moss on a shoot for German Vogue, and today they remain among his most popular pictures. At the end of a day shooting on a roof-top in Marrakech, Watson suggested he create nude photographs of Moss and she happily obliged. He notes that, "I still think these are among the best pictures ever taken of her and she said so as well recently."'
