Joel Peter Witkin

One of my favorites, I think he started his professional career out as a war photographer in Vietnam. I like the narrative quality in Mr. Witkin's images. Some of his images make me feel like he is remaking what has already been made (classical paintings), but with his own unique take on the subject. You can tell when photographers have something going on in their heads, and I think Joel Peter Witkin has something going on.

Is that what you think? I think that I'm going to have nightmares because of these photos... that's what I think.

p.s. the word varification for this comment is 'trifie' which I think could be a new word for a trifalin' ass wifey!
