Joel-Peter Witkin—Brides & prostitutes in Bogota

Last week CEG received two new Joel-Peter Witkin prints that we are going to bring down with us to exhibit in Art Miami, December 2-6, 2009.  As is his custom, JPW included a handwritten note along with the work, so I thought we’d share his insights into the pieces along with the photographs themselves.
