Two recent Luminous-Lint exhibitions have been added that are part of a "Photographic Full Body Map" - the first was the online exhibition Back view and this was followed by
Portraits: Parts of body: Hands. The latest exhibition concentrates on Portraits: Parts of body: Feet.

"Isn't it awful that cold feet make for a cold imagination and that a pair of woollen socks induce good thoughts!"

Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872), Austrian author
Notebooks and Diaries (1819)

If there are collectors who can assist with photographs of the body I would be most grateful - I'm particularly interested in 19th and early 20th century photographs of eyes, ears, genitalia, breasts, skulls, knees and elbows in any format. Medical photography and x-rays are also of interest - many thanks, Alan -
