From the publisher: "New York-based artist-photographer Robert Flynt has for years been photo-graphing male nudes while underwater. By employing a variety of specialized printing techniques, including multiple exposure, his nudes summon feelings of loss or the rapturous movement of sexual encounter. Flynt's work asks the viewer to reconsider traditional notions of beauty by reconfiguring it in unfamiliar depths that foster sensual immersion. The hauntingly poetic images in Compound Fracture provide a new context for viewing the human form in relation to other bodies, space, and history."
