The article profiles Joanna Ebenstein, a New York-based graphic designer, photographer and cultural historian. It states that Ebenstein takes pictures of anatomical models of skeletical remains and pickled body parts. It notes that her fascination began in her childhood since her grandfather was a physician and her father was an amateur naturalist. Her father supplied her with formaldehyde so that she could preserve dead animals that she found.
