Raymundo Torres submits Joel Peter Witkin

Achieve beauty trough the grotesque is what Joel Peter Witkin does.
''Visiting medical schools, morgues and insane asylums around the world, Witkin seeks out his collaborators, who, in the end, represent the numerous personas of the artist himself. The resulting photographs are haunting and beautiful, grotesque yet bold in their defiance a hideous beauty that is as compelling as it is taboo''.
I believe it is his strong imagery what definitely captured my attention, secondly his ideas seemed like a social mirror in witch I found that compassion and understanding can be achieved if we simply look closer at the situation.
His composition make my eyes flow and curiosity intrigued.
