Transgressive photographer Joel-Peter Witkin draws from 4 different collections of photographs for this monograph of graphic & challenging images he finds inspirational: 19th century insane asylum photos, crime scene photos, antique medical photos, & images from the Kinsey Institute for Sex Research. Many of these photos are from the collection of Dr. Stanley Burns of the Burns Archive; his Sleeping Beauty series of Victorian post-mortem portraiture is a firm favorite among collectors of funeral photography & memorials. Stated first edition in a very good dust jacket. Condition is excellent save for some surface wear to the cover. Scarce.
