About The Book
In this, our second volume of Witkin’s photographs, the work is as controversial as ever. In often torturous or eroticized still lifes and tableaux, cadavers, physical anomalies, transsexuals and animals are carefully arranged to create a mythology that could originate only in the imagination of this singular artist. In Gods of Earth and Heaven, Witkin advances an aesthetic point of view in a manner that raises his artistic output to a new level of sophistication. As often praised as he is derided by critics, his work has become a basis for serious debate on issues of life and death, love and sexuality. At the very least Witkin’s work challenges traditional canons of beauty and the spiritual in art. An updated bibliography and exhibition history are included.
