"The body beautiful, the body shocking, the body erotic. The body sublime-154 alluring images by the most acclaimed photographers of their day. Here are photographs - in black-and-white and in color - of men and women, clothed and unclothed, taken from the 1880s though the 1990s by Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Imogen Cunningham, Steven Meisel, Man Ray, Bettina Rheims, Helmut Newton, Sally Mann, Kurt Markus, Jerome Zerbe, Ellen von Unwerth, André Kertesz, Arthur Elgort, Louis Dahl-Wolf, Herbert List, Eve Arnold, Brassaï and sixty-four others. Kelly Klein, whose first book, Pools, changed the way we think of them, has gathered together these astonishing pictures - sometimes startling, always intriguing - in which the body is elegantly, mischievously, charmingly, or tauntingly revealed, some that by current standards shock, other that seem classic today but in their own time were considered wicked."
