Photo Poche, No. 49: Joel-Peter Witkin

Geoffrey Batchen

MIT Press

Apostle of “unpleasant beauty” and abnormality, constantly looking for exceptional personages, deformed or monstrous, Joel-Peter Witkin gives images that could only be a provocative dimension of secular icons, sacrificial allegories. This is Soutine or campaign which must be quoted to find similarities in the art of sublime horror. Witkin’s work is a dance of death, sumptuously staged by the most visionary photographers.
