‘People say sometimes that beauty is only superficial. That may be so. But at least it is not so superficial as thought is. To me beauty is the wonder of wonders. It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible not the invisible…’ (Oscar Wilde)
A composite portrait of the human body assembled from details captured by close-up photography of over five hundred men and women of all ages and from all over the world. The surface of the human body is revealed as it is rarely seen except in the most intimate relationships we have with our family or our lovers; a portrait of the body that is both sexy and tender, elegant and witty.
