"The work of a distinguished group of photographers
who have been drawn to explore the body stripped
of its superficial coverings down to its inner realities.
There is real beauty beneath the surface both in life,
as revealed by the surgeon's scalpel, and in death,
as revealed by the pathologist's or anatomist's knife.
The contemporary photographs in this book,
combined with powerful images from
the Museum's historical photography collection,
stretch the boundaries to find beauty
not in its conventional form, but in its opposite:
the deformed, the broken, the disfigured body
of those who suffered physical abnormality,
trauma, or destructive disease.
There is a terrifying beauty as well in the spirits
of those who endured nature's challenges
to human life and to medical understanding."
