The neck exists in the background, in the shadow of the face. In this book, Thomas Wagstrom has photographed, with tenderness, more than 50 necks of different ages and characters. Karl Ove Knausgard contributes a compelling essay, The Other Side of the Face, about our most vulnerable yet unchangeable body part. A neck is in time, belongs to time, but is not formed by it. If these photos could have been taken ten thousand years ago, they would have looked the same.
