Sadly it just came to my attention that one of my photographic idols - Ruth Bernhard passed away at 101 last December. Ruth was last living member of the famous f.64 group that that included Adams, Weston and Imogen Cunningham. The work in her book, The Eternal Body, for me sets the standard for artistic nudes and "bodyscapes." Here is a link to a San Fransisco examiner piece on a memorial show going on currently:

Here is her Wikipedia bio:

And here is my favorite image of her's - "nude in a box":

Ansel Adams was quoted as saying that she was "the greatest photographer of the nude"

Thanks for the post. I had a vague recopllection of her name but had not looked closely at her work. I'll be doing that now after having seen some of the images on the links you gave.
