Summary
"In print for twenty-five years and now available as an elegant hardcover, Ruth Bernhard: The Eternal Body is the first collection of Bernhard's finest nudes to be presented in a single monograph. In her private quest to "simplify, isolate, and give emphasis to form with greatest clarity," Bernhard passionately created a collection of images that rank among the most profound photographs of the female nude. Her intense, studied camera work produced images of the human form that clearly transcend the boundaries between the spirit and the flesh. Featuring an insightful new foreword by Karen Sinsheimer, curator of photography at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and an illuminating biography by photographer Margaretta Mitchell, this reissue of a landmark book honors one of the most celebrated artists of the last century"--Provided by publisher.
