Harms way : lust & madness, murder & mayhem : a book of photographs( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
The bone house by Joel-Peter Witkin( Book )

This is a retrospective look at the work of one of the late twentieth century's most profound and disturbing artists. For this collection Joel-Peter Witkin has personally selected from his own archives his finest images, ranging from his early Coney Island "freak show" studies to his most recent work. Witkin's portraits of subjects both living and dead have disturbed countless viewers for their unwavering viewpoint and magically grotesque compositions. The artist's sojourn captured here, with each photograph a station along his path, veers between oblivion and salvation. This book depicts Witkin's journey until now.

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
Joel-Peter Witkin by Joel-Peter Witkin( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This pocket-size catalogue of the American artist Joel-Peter Witkin's inimitable work includes a selection of more than 50 astonishing photographs, a collection that expresses the artist's unique point of view on an extraordinary segment of humanity. Witkin's powerful and transgressive images are renowned for their depiction of outsiders including dwarves, transsexuals, hermaphrodites and physically deformed people. They are equally appreciated for their high aesthetic refinement, referencing classical paintings, Baroque art, Surrealism and other genres including still lifes and religious episodes. Witkin has said that his vision and sensibility were initiated by an episode he witnessed as a small child--a car accident in front of his house in which a little girl was decapitated. He has also said that difficulties in his family were an influence: his Jewish father and Catholic mother parted over religious differences
