the face and the body

From the PRE FACE of the book FACE (see other post), quoting William A. Ewing:

"(...) after all, we are seldom able to scrutinize another naked body in the public sphere. We do, however, walk around with our faces exposed to the gaze of others. While the body, therefore, remains largely a private affair, despite our culture's obsession with it, the face is a public one."

(p. 12)
