'Drawing on myriad genres and techniques – portraits, nudes, fashion spreads, medical micrographs – Nathalie Herschdorfer approaches the body as a nebulous and dynamic organism, a site for self-invention, a source of self-loathing, and an arena for personal myth and public scrutiny … the book contains a number of contemporary masterpieces'
New York Times Book Review
'A landmark survey'
'Explores in 432 pages what our imagery of the human form and the ways in which these images have been used and shared can reflect our relationship to the body'
