Photography from a master of human form, Howard Schatz

In the brief months of a woman's pregnancy, the female form takes on a shape that has, for centuries, been a subject of artistic study. Acclaimed photographer Howard Schatz has captured the biologic sculpture of the pregnant body with his eighteenth book, With Child.

In her introduction to this monograph, renowned photography critic Vicki Goldberg writes, "In Schatz's studio, all subjects are transformed: one to alabaster; one to marble; another to bronze; one to an Arp; another to a dark etching, and still another to a fantastic zebra-like sculpture". These images go beyond a particular stage of the body's life into an exploration, and a conversion, of forms, at times verging on abstraction. They serve as points of departure: what can the pregnant body be while it remains itself?
