Joel Peter Witkin is an american photographer. Each of Witkin’s photographs is a unique object, personally printed by the artist, who has been working in the darkroom since his teens and was a photographer during the Vietnam War. Witkin has a deft touch, depicting erotic, sometimes illicit subjects with the care and elegance of an Old Master Renaissance nude.
