Cover Image: "Turning the skin into a canvas for the imagination is both an artistic and a spiritual endeavor," says Jean-Paul Bourdier, the UC Berkeley architecture professor whose photograph titled "Sphinx" appears in his book Bodyscapes (Earth Aware Editions, San Rafael: 2007). His artwork is represented by Volakis Gallery, and his exhibit, "Body of Light," can be seen at the Townsend Center for Humanities through Dec.17.
