Nude female torsos, photographed from the neck down to the knees against a black background, perform precisely planned gestures: raising and lowering their arms, covering and uncovering the pubic mound, breasts, shoulder blades. Mechanical and impersonal as the gestures may seem, the models’ bodies themselves bear individual marks such as wrinkles, hairs, or tan. As with the hands series, the different gestures have been grouped into sequences of six or twelve elements.
