'Startling, provocative and voyeuristic' - The Face
'One of the most unique and powerful photographic books in recent memory' - Camera and Darkroom
'The Body navigates the shoals and rapids of an aesthetically and politically loaded topic, and manages not only to survive the journey but also to shed substantial light on how photographers have used the human figure for a variety of pictorial purposes through more than 150 years' - New York Times Book Review
