Page after provocative page, Schatz transforms his nudes- all beautifully colorized in vibrant saturated tones as well as metallic ink-into a wild variety of forms, from the headless to the humorous, from the footless to the fantastic, from the sensual to the sardonic. Twisted, turned, and seen from different perspectives, these bodies take on shapes and contortions one would not dream possible.
Created by a master photographer, Body Knots is an extraordinary volume displaying the human body at its most malleable yet articulate, rendering it as familiar as arrestingly new.
