"For Hosoe, the flesh comes first, but he knows that its potential is most evident in a place that accommodates and accepts the flesh on its own terms. He tries to create such places for flesh in the world of his art--in places and photographs in which one not only sees the flesh, not only feels its warmth, but also senses the light that connects the body to the supreme and highest realms."--from Ronald J. Hill's afterword.
