    1. Witkin is incredible. One can see how much his stuff has been plagiarised by mass culture. Take the Nine Inch Nails Closer video; the bondage, the crucified monkey, the aviator goggles.

Resolveu pegar nos freaks de circos de horror e fazer representações ao seu estilo de ob [...]

    4. Awesome photography (old school--no digital) feature dwarfs, mutants, and freaks in odd costumes and crazy positions. Mostly naked.
