Described by Ansel Adams as the greatest photographer of the nude, The Eternal Body was the first collection of Bernhard’s forty year study of the nude presented in a single, elegantly bound monograph. Bernhard’s intense, studied camera work has produced images of the human form that clearly transcend the boundaries between the spirit and the flash. Each photograph contains a classic perfection, giving it a sense of the eternal and making it a timeless masterpiece of the human figure.
