Kate Bush in Fong Leng

Kate Bush was photographed by Claude Vanheye back in the seventies, they were beautiful pictures, as seen below. We were told that some of the pictures were banned because her breasts were showing. You must know that Ms Bush was under the age of twenty at that time, our guess is that these pictures were taken in 1978 when she was 19 years old and her debut song Wuthering Heights was topping the charts.Kate Bush in Fong Leng

Looking at the pictures now, 35 years later they seem quite prudent, times have changed.
