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. Her intense, studied camerawork transcended the boundaries between the spirit and the flesh. 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. Featuring a new foreword by Karen Sinsheimer, and an illuminating biography by Margaretta Mitchell, this new edition of a landmark book honors one of our most celebrated artist photographers.
