The next day, I took the photograph with a Linhof 4x5 camera. His images are inhabited by social outcasts, including dwarves, hermaphrodites, people with unusual physical capabilities or deformities, and mutilated corpses and amputated body parts from the dead, obtained from medical schools, insane asylums and morgues. These images do not dwell in the modern world, but rather exist in a timeless place where the ages collide. The nature of his work has been marked as offensive and shocking to public eye. Witkin's longtime publisher brings out this latest update of his oeuvre with the lush reproductions and immaculate design one expects from Twin Palms.
