Publisher's Description

Poetic and thoughtful, Ishiuchi’s intense photographic study searches for a certain innocence and purity in the traces of scars left on women’s bodies as evidence of life lived. Photographed in black and white throughout, the details of bodies collected in this edition, provide an eloquent essay on age and beauty.
