“What is the most precious part of your body?”
What started as an idle thought between celebrity photographer couple Melanie Dunea and Nigel Parry quickly developed into a serious metaphysical investigation using today’s most captivating personalities. The resulting photographs, accompanied by a quote from each celebrity explaining their choice of body part, reveals the subjects' personalities through their choice, their own words, and Dunea and Parry’s eloquent images.
