The human form, writes Wade Davis in the Foreword to Ancient Marks, became, through the brilliance of inspired artistry, a sacred geography of the soul, a map of culture and myth expressed through the simplicity of forms painted, carved, incised, or etched upon the canvas of the body. By turning his lens to this multifaceted worldwide art form, photographer Chris Rainier has given us a compelling book that connects body marking traditions to the great themes of mankind while documenting an aesthetic that goes far beyond skin deep.
