[Perspectives] Body images

Body of Art is a book the colour and size of a breeze block that could break your coffee table. Don’t fret; there is much of interest in this rich collection of art for health professionals. The images comprehensively span humanity’s take on our own form, going from the tubby Venus of Willendorf made around 24 000 BB (before bariatric) to Ryan Trecartin’s frenzied video Center Jenny (2013) of American youth and their aspirations for physical perfection.
