Figueroa, Alejandra - Corpus rare! new in plastic!
Corpus is the first major monograph on the photography of Alejandra Figueroa, introducing the photographer to the North American audience. The fruit of several years' work, this series of black-and-white photographs of statues from the world's greatest museums captures every nuance of flesh and exalts every detail of the human body-proof of the classical beauty of Figueroa's art and her dedication to the sensuality of forms.
This breathtaking collection of sixty-nine quadratone photographs is an invitation to a voyage through past and present, matter and flesh, sacred and profane, life and death, seen through the most subtle and sensuous of lenses. Figueroa's closeup images of sculpted bodies follow in a double tradition: that of great painters, in her skilled framing and lighting, which give every picture the illusion of life; and that of such great photographers as Edward Weston and Manuel Alvarez Bravo.
