Veruschka: Transfigurations
by Vera Lehndorff
Publisher's Description
The beautiful model and actress Vera Lehndorff chose as her stage name "Veruschka" during her rise to fame in the 1960s. Now she is back again in a collaborative effort with the European artist and photographer Holger Trülzsch that uses her nude body as the canvas for fantastic illustrations and distortions. These erotic, witty, and sometimes disturbing images produce a radical "body art" of transformation. For example, in the "Oxidation" series, her nude body is rendered nearly invisible against disintegrating factory walls. Susan Sontag contributes a perceptive essay on beauty and the issues raised by the body as canvas.
