Text in German

In the simplest descriptive sense, Ann Mandelbaum’s photographs are merely close-ups of portions of the human body ambiguously and sensually presented. In a larger sense, they are rigidly composed images, manipulated in various ways to create an almost textural viewing sensation. 

Through a multimedia approach combining photography, sculpture, and video, Mandelbaum has created a convincing, authentic position in contemporary surrealism. She explores the experiences of her own body, its fantastic reality, and the psychophysical fate she has experienced. In Thin Skin she relates and compares casts of body parts made in recent years, fragments of reality reinterpreted in her photographs, and the microorganisms she has invented and collected in display cases. 

Please Note - at the end of the book are four short essays in German language only
