Abstract:

"Described by Ansel Adams as the greatest photographer of the nude, Ruth Bernhard created a collection of images that ranks among the most profound photographs of the female form. Her intense, studied camerawork transcended the boundaries between the spirit and the flesh. Ruth Bernhard: The Eternal Body is the first monograph of Bernhard s nudes, in print for 25 years, and now in a newly designed hardcover. Featuring a new foreword by Karen Sinsheimer, and an illuminating biography by Margaretta Mitchell, this new edition of a landmark book honors one of our most celebrated artist photographers"--

"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"--
