Body Land: Body Land (Hardcover)

Body Land: Body Land Cover Image
By Arno Rafael Minkkinen (Photographer)
Hard to Find


In this collection of self-portraits Arno Rafael Minkkinen incorporates his own nude body into a range of isolated settings, emphasizing its bond to the natural world. Whether rooted to the ground like an aspen or emerging from a smooth bank of snow, he contorts himself to merge with the contours of the landscape. An essay that explores his relationship to the camera as both photographer and subject discusses how photography can merge past and future, as well as individual bodies with the earth, sea, and even air.
