Blowup is a 1966 British-Italian art film directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, his first to feature an English language screenplay and also the first British film to feature full frontal female nudity.

As a famous fashion photographer, Thomas mixes with the rich and famous. But he is disillusioned with his work and rich lifestyle, where even casual sex is mechanical and contrived. Then one day he secretly takes photos of two lovers in a park. The woman of the couple pursues him; eventually finding his apartment and trying to seduce him for the film. This leads Thomas to investigate the film, making blowups (enlargements) of the photos. This seems to reveal a body, but the director cleverly used the heavy film grain and black & white imagery to obscure the image. This drives Thomas to keep making blowups and try to find the truth.

This scene is from the fashion photoshoot. An amazing look at Swinging London, 60's Models, and Fashion.
