Deborah In Dentist Chair

This photograph of Deborah Vaughan was taken at Thornton's flat in Hyde Park Mansions. Equal parts provocative, surreal and erotic, the image captures Thornton at the height of his daring powers. Thornton's work has been praised by critics and thrown out by ad agencies - labelled 'too weird'. Thornton has the last laugh though - his series 'Surreal, Erotic Images' toured internationally to over 10 major cities. Sat in a dentist's chair, the half-naked model takes up the role of patient.
