Inevitable death and our agony to attain Utopia have made existence a form of pathology. We are left with the secret need for redemption which few of us will understand or witness. This need still lives in acts of love, courage and art. In the images included in this book it is found in the conjoined destinies of artist and subject, phantoms on either side of that curtain we call photography. Implicit in these photographs is the brutal extreme of their purpose and an intimation however distant to their makers that something was manifested beyond the event itself

Pour s'émanciper de la tutelle des anciens, il faut d'abord l'avoir connue et avoir su mettre à profit leurs enseignements. August Sander, Weegee, Diane Arbus, Roger Fenton, Lewis Carroll, entre autres, sont autant d'influences pour le travail de Witkin, qui cherche à affronter ses inhibitions et à s'affranchir des interdits moraux, tout en se nourrissant continuellement d'art et d'images
