Il Corpo Solitario (the solitary body) is a small exhibition of photographic works at  the Palazzo della Penna, Perugia which runs until 27th October 2013.

On display are a series of self portraits.  Many  are nudes though none are meant to titillate.

They show  nakedness as a way of showing the self in its most exposed state.

These are two images (photos of photos), The first is by Giada Rochira called Pensanda (Thinking) which I like for the strong, almost defiant pose of the subject

The second by Rosy Martin makes a fairly bleak statement about ageing with a work entitled  ‘The vagina begins to shrivel …..’  which features an extended quote by David Reuben from ‘Everything you always wanted to know about sex but were afraid to ask’ telling women things they’d rather not know about.
