In the sixties he moved to New York, where he became more and more popular. He spent a few years in this city and then returned to Paris.
His name is linked to nude photography.
Also in this artistic field, as in the others, Sieff makes a lot of use of the pushed wide-angle lens, which gives a unique and unmistakable imprint to his ironic and never vulgar style and makes the models with more slender shapes.
The soft light that illuminates the face, while the rest of the details lose importance, characterize these images.
Actors, politicians and artists posed for him.
Sieff has been an important reference for many photographers, his particular vision through the wide angle has influenced many artists.
He died in Paris in 2000.
