Photo Essay: Body

Posted on 19 Apr 2019

The body remains a battleground. Politicised, conceptualised and increasingly shared, our often-paradoxical relationship with our bodies is nothing new, but finds itself heightened in the digital era. 'Body' explores how photography reflects our relationship to the human form. Take a look at some of the images from the book.
