    Garry Schneider's photographic exploration ... and galaxies.

    Hello everybody!

    Garry Schneider's photographic exploration of the universe that is the human body holds the kind of magic and wonder found in pictures of distant stars, nebulae and galaxies.

    I think the meaning of the sentence above is as follows:


    Garry Schneider's photographic exploration of the universe, that is to say the human body, is somehow magical and wonderful, which can be found in pictures of distant stars, nebulae and galaxies.

    What do you think?

    I'd take it as meaning that his photographs have a similar magic to the photos we get from things like the Hubble telescope, though he's exploring the human body.

    He is equating the human body to the universe which is made up of stars, nebulae and galaxies. Both hold the same magic and wonder.

    "... the universe that is the human body" even states that the human body is "a universe".
