Joel-Peter Witkin

Story From a Book, 1999

“I have consecrated my life to changing matter into spirit with the hope of one day seeing it all in total form”. — Joel-Peter Witkin.

Drawing from a rich body of sources—literature, myth, Renaissance and Baroque painting, and his own personal background—he creates elaborate images that address the morbid, the perverse, the erotic, and the religious.
