In Your Own Skin - Signed Copy

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In Your Own Skin is an antidote to human separation. Katheryn Trenshaw reveals our most powerful secrets in photographic autobiographies on skin and turns these portraits into a powerful medium for change. Katheryn has been travelling around the globe for the last few years like a peripatetic social anthropologist treasure hunter collecting stories, footage and photographs of strangers in response to the question: What is true of you but not obvious to strangers?" Through a face, a look or body language we believe we can tell all sorts of things about another person. It is almost second nature to us to project all kinds of ideas about who people are and what they are about. Although these external observations may contain some truth, much can be missed Katheryn interviews each person and invites the sitter to allow the answer to be painted onto their skin. The result is as fascinating as it is unexpected. In excellent condition, corners very gently rubbed but otherwise near new, signed by Katheryn Trenshaw without dedication on the title page.
