Yes, indeed. The Eternal Body by Bernhard has 50 examples. Image quality in the original edition of 1986 may be better than some of the later editions. Margaretta Mitchell's biography, Ruth Bernhard: Between Art and Life, nicely supplements The Eternal Body. Like her friend Edward Weston, Bernhard had to give up handling a camera late in life, but she continued to conduct workshops into her 90s.
