Nick Cave about the cover of Push the Sky Away:

That has come under certain amount of criticism. People have thought, “There he goes again, exploiting women, objectifying women.” I just want people out there [to know] that it is my wife. It was a photograph taken by our dear friend Dominque [Issermann], a French female photographer, who was actually doing a photo session about another thing with Susie, who was in between costumes, in my bedroom. She took off the one costume, was naked, I happened to walk in and Dominique said, “Go and open the window over there.” I opened up the window; she took the photo, and told me to leave. We just saw this photo and thought it was a beautiful thing. It was very much a photo of a woman by a woman.
