Overzicht van het werk van de Amerikaanse fotograaf (geb. 1939)
Harms way : lust & madness, murder & mayhem : a book of photographs( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 364 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 )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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.

Dans le sillage de l'exposition consacrée à Joel-Peter Witkin à la BnF à Paris, les éditions Delpire publie cette monographie du photographe américain. Witkin est fasciné par les êtres aux caractéristiques physiques étranges, difformes et singulières, qu'il recrute par petites annonces pour créer ses photos. Celles-ci sont des mises en scène soignées de portraits de personnes mêlées à des objets dans un assemblage baroque et hétéroclite. Les photos sont souvent retravaillées : griffures sur le négatif, traitements chimiques, maculage, etc. Witkin crée une ambiance qui renforce l'aspect morbide des sujets et la poésie de la prise de vue.0Edition bilingue français/anglais

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
