Body Knots

type
  • Book

Calloused feet, hairless chests, and veiny limbs abound in Body Knots, the fascinating photo collection of dancers who make the Cirque du Soleil contortionists look like carnival slackers. With most of the subjects’ head neatly tucked away to emphasize just how surreal — and unidentifiable — the human form can be, Howard Schatz manipulates digitally colorized groupings of nude figures into likeness of everything from a seashell necklace to a hot fudge sundae. While some of the images are more reminiscent of Target ads than high art, they certainly bring new meanings to the phrase ”body shots.” B+
