In a glossy volume approaching 500 pages, British artist and designer Paul Elliman has collected images from a variety of sources fashion magazines, glamour photography and pornography cropping and arranging the clippings in a manner that especially emphasises the presence of hands, along with the many gestures of which they are capable. Also prevalent in the spectrum of clothed, semi-nude and nude human forms are limbs, feet, torsos and erogenous zones. Without any text or explanation, the series takes on a mesmerising aspect wherein the action of flipping through the pages becomes a kind of meditative contemplation of the fragmented human body.
