Roswitha Hecke’s photo book Liebes Leben (Love Life) about the Zurich artist-muse and prostitute, Irene, also called “Lady Shiva”, was published for the first time in 1978. It became both a cult book and an international success. Reprinted many times and translated into several languages, it is finally available again. The new, revised volume put out by Edition Patrick Frey presents photos that have never before been published.
