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. 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.

Hauntingly sensual yet classically reserved, the book's ethereal duotone photographs appear to be illuminated from within so that even the simplest lines of the human form - a draped torso, a curved neck, an angled limb - take on a complexity not often seen in work of this kind.

  • Classic photography. Bought one for myself, and another one as a gift for my friend. Soft, sensual, artistic nude shot by a woman photographer. Must for every fine art photographer

  • Being saturated with female images produced only for male desire, it is a relief and a kind of miracle to see the female nude as simply herself.

  • I like this book a lot because it shows a REAL artistic nude portfolio and is the standard of such work.

  • Wonderful photographs in good reproduction. I had never heard of Ruth Bernhard until I saw one of her figure photographs on Pinterest.

  • Ordered used. So this was the original publication. Cover is different. But I lucked out. Author signed the copy I have. Score!

  • Classy book, bought as a gift and he loved it.

  • This book underscores Ruth Bernhard's command of the nude. Excellent posing and lighting. Her work stands up well to any later figure studies.

  • I recently purchased this book and why did I wait this long? All I can say is breathtaking. Being a photographer who sometimes does nudes for personal project, it is a challenging task to compose and light the human body avoiding from making it "pornlike" or overtly sexual. Each style has its own place in the marketplace; however, the former requires much more skills than just a good looking model.
