Revealed yet concealed. Shameless yet shameful. Ease with
unease. Beauty and destruction. These paradoxes are displayed in

Coated in white marble dust and set against the void of the
photographer's studio, the subjects of Nadav Kander's BODIES. 6

Far from the airbrushed perfection that permeates images of
nudity in popular culture, Nadav Kander presents us with honest
photographs of the human form. The 'bodies' featured reference the
forms of the classical and renaissance past, whilst modernising the
genre of the nude to act as a tool for philosophical investigation.
Faces turned from the viewer, but bodies offered completely, the
forms invite the meditation and self-reflection customarily
associated with religious iconography and tomb sculpture.
