A Body

Rate this:
For 33 years, Coplans has photographed his body nude, from the age of 58 to the age of 81. Mythic in scope and unflinching in its examination of one person's humanness and mortality, in this sequence of 115 duotone images, Coplans transcends the boundaries of photography as an art. Epic, grotesque, bittersweet, sensual, provocative, funny and even, at times, absurd, Coplans achieves a visual meditation on the compelling relationship between sensuality, ageing and death that is unparalleled in the history of the medium.
