Images of the human body have always intrigued, attracted and obsessed us, but photography has intensified our obsessions for at least 150 years. The body has inspired a long tradition of photographing the nude. It has also been scrutinized by medical and anatomical photographers; celebrated by photographers of sport, dance and fashion; and depicted in phantasmagoric terms, in the realms of dream imagery and the imagination.
Today, in the age of the supermodel and the super-athlete, consciousness of both the private and the public body has achieved a new immediacy. That the 1988 Mapplethorpe exhibition became an international cause celebre and, ultimately, the focus of an obscenity trial is just one example of how deeply photographs of the body continue to stir passion, cause controversy and compel interest at all levels of society. The Body is a true reflection of this fascination - and an exciting and provocative record of the camera's infatuation with the human figure.
