Nina G. Jablonski
“Our skin mediates the most important transactions of our lives. Skin is key to our biology, our sensory experiences, our information gathering, and our relationships with others. Although the many roles it plays are rarely appreciated, it is one of the most remarkable and highly versatile parts of the human body.”
“In a world of increasingly globalized fashion, adornment of the skin is one of the last frontiers of individuality and personal adventure.”
“Our skin talks even when we don't; it is not a neutral canvas.”
Nina G. Jablonski, U.S. anthropologist, palaeobiologist
