The Camera's Naked Eye

A new show's opened in New York devoted to photographing the human body.

Here is an excerpt from the New York Times:

“Naked Before the Camera,” which opened this week at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, is an sweeping examination of photography showcasing the naked body. The show presents works mostly from Europe and the United States from 1850 to the present, including photographs by Nadar, Eakins, Muybridge, Brassaï and Mapplethorpe.
