Self Portrait Suspended

White Cube, 2004

A simple, cleanly designed book presenting Sam Taylor-Johnson (formerly Taylor-Wood)’s series Self Portrait Suspended, in which the artist was trussed up by a bondage expert and hung from the roof of her studio.┬áThe ropes were then erased out digitally.┬áThe resulting images depict what the artist described as moments of absolute release and freedom.
