THE BODY BEYOND
BY MATTHEW STONE

concept & fashion design Yuima Nakazato
art direction Rob Meyers for RBPMstudio
Fashion designer Yuima Nakazato has collaborated with artist Matthew Stone to create 'The Body Beyond' a limited edition art-book of new photographs. Perfectly matching Nakazato's personal inspiration of imagined and utopian nudist colonies with Stone's history of nude photography, 'The Body Beyond' represents a new and inspired way to present the designer's vision and his 2012 S/S collection.
The New York Times recently said that Matthew Stone's work "suggests that what the world needs now is not political agitation but a new, mystically inspired choreography of how to be human."
The Body Beyond will be Matthew Stone's first published collection of photographs and is available in a strictly limited edition of 1,000 copies from January 2012.
132 pages / 235 x 180 mm / English / 2011
