9780922233243: The Mutter Museum: Of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia
From the Publisher:

The aesthetics of the living body have long fascinated artists working in every medium of art. Mutter Museum presents the work of a distinguished group of photographers who have been drawn to explore the body stripped of its superficial coverings down to its inner realities. There is real beauty beneath the surface both in life, as revealed by the surgeon's scalpel, and in death, as revealed by the pathologist's or anatomist's knife. The contemporary photographs in this book, combined with powerful images from the Museum's historical photography collection, stretch the boundaries to find beauty not in its conventional form, but in its opposite: the deformed, the broken, the disfigured body of those who suffered physical abnormality, trauma, or destructive disease. There is a terrifying beauty as well in the spirits of those who endured nature's challenges to human life and to medical understanding.

About the Author:

Gretchen Worden is the Director of the Mutter Museum. The subject of a recent documentary, Smiling in a Jar, by Errol Morris, she is also past president of the Museum Council of Philadelphia and serves on the executive board of the Society of Civil War Surgeons.
