Photographs by Matthew Chase-Daniel.
188 pp., 88 black & white illustrations, 8½x11".
In Chase-Daniel's 2011 series of black and white flatplate scanner photographs of the human body, we are engaged with a rare blend of intimacy and anonymity. As we move through this series, we are by turns seduced and repulsed, the anomalous becomes beautiful, the individual becomes universal. By the end, our sense of boundaries is blurred, between male and female, the beautiful and the ugly, the sacred and profane, youth and old age, self and other.
