Day 25: Joel-Peter Witkin
By Sam Reeve
Since Tracy Vanity has done an exceptional job at shitting all over this holiday (read the post here), I won’t even bother to do so myself. Just know that I hate this day and that from this hate Weird Art Month was born!
Today’s artist is the photographer Joel-Peter Witkin. His work is dark, grotesque and totally awesome and not Christmas-appropriate. His work often features corpses, dwarves and other strange subjects. For the corpse/body part work, he had to shoot in Mexico so as to avoid the law.
Warning: some of these may be disturbing.
