Overview

The classic Photofile series brings together the best work of the world's greatest photographers in an attractive format and at a reasonable price.
Handsome and collectible, the books each contain reproductions in duotone and/or color, plus a critical introduction and a bibliography.
With his focus on the "disagreeable beauty" of the anomalous and the transgressive, Joel-Peter Witkin's images are edgy and disturbing. Influenced by artists from Giotto to the Surrealists, by daguerreotypes and the work of Bellocq, his portraits and complex tableaux incorporating corpses, hermaphrodites, masks, and mutilation provoke and challenge the viewer.

This book is a Christmas gift. It came maybe 3 days after ordering, so I was very excited to receive it so quickly. The book is small, almost pocket-sized, which I wasnt aware of but this is still a great product.
