Individually, the photographs present fragmented perspectives of the body. As a group, they come together in a riot of movement and stillness, luxury and abjection.

Drawn from the Gallery’s collection, the photographs encompass four overlapping themes: the performative and fertile body; the body in extremis; the classical body; and the abject body.

The featured artists are: David Bailey, Ruth Bernhard, Robert Besanko, Jamie Bradbeer, Warren Breninger, Jane Burton, Paul Cox, Lynn Davis, Max Dupain, Ralph Gibson, Douglas Holleley, Ronnie van Hout, Simone Mangos, Tracey Moffatt, Lewis Morley, Sue Paull, JeanLoup Sieff, Shomei Tomatsu and William Yang.
