Tonight on Inquiry we talk with journalist, editor and writer Jonathan Black about his very entertaining new social history Making The American Body: The Remarkable Saga Of The Men And Women Whose Feats, Feuds, And Passions Shaped Fitness History. Tonight Jonathan talks about the early years in bodybuilding and fitness training with the likes of Charles Atlas, Muscle Beach, Abbye Pudgy Stockton, and Jack Lalanne.
Then: Tonight on Inquiry we welcome back artist and photographer Tara Sellios. Tara’s extraordinary photographic series are meditation on fragility, impermanence, carnality and death. Her work, sensual but also shocking, relates to themes found in memento mori canvasses from the 16th century. To see some fine examples of Tara’s work go to her website: http://tarasellios.com/
