This book is an anthology of Ishiuchi's works features on the theme "body" which she has been working on since 80's. Containing her series; 1・9・4・7, 1906 to the skin, Nails, Scars, Innocence, A to A, Mother's, and Hiroshima.

Born in Kiryu City, Gunma Prefecture, Miyako Ishiuchi grew up in Yokosuka and started her career as a photographer in the late 1970s. Having exhibited in both Japan and abroad and also released photo books, she became one of the representative photographers of contemporary Japan. After winning attention with her printing style where cityscape, buildings and walls are portrayed in a coarse-grained texture as seen in her early series, Ishiuchi shifted her focus to the human body in the late 1980s, exploring the trajectory of life represented by scars and wrinkles imprinted on the body over time. She went on to establish her unswerving position in the field after the turn of the century, drawing international attention with a series of exhibitions among which "Mother's" (2002), the portrayal of her deceased mother's belongings, and "Hiroshima" (2008), the documentation of things left behind after Hiroshima atomic bombing, are notable.

This was published as a catalog of exhibition of Ishiuchi's photographs held at Modern Art Museum Gunma, Japan, 2009.
