Never-before-seen topless shots of thyroid cancer survivor Brooke Burke and clothed images of beauties Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima and Laetitia Casta are to feature in a new exhibition of Andre Plessel's work.

The German photographer's Visions will open at the Lilac Gallery in New York on 17 October (14).

Burke's photos were taken in the late 1990s when she agreed to take a trip along America's iconic Route 66 with the photographer.
