Mary Ellen Mark, Justine Kurland, and Joel-Peter Witkin

Just when you start to think mass media (aka.. deadwood newspapers) are all worthless..you wake up Sunday Morning to the amazing New York Times!

Plus, the New York Times Magazine must have some huge art budget super Art photo savvy editors.

Justone_kurland_still_left_behind If the Nan Goldin portrait of Kiki Smith 2 weeks ago wasn't impressive enough this month.. Today they out did themselves.  Included in today's magazine were 2 feature stories with new photo work by Mary Ellen Mark, and Justine Kurland, plus a third unexpected, but cool style photo project by Joel-Peter Witkin.

Here's the cover image by Justine Kurland (Photo #1 Still Left Behind).. and inside were several art history inspired style photos by transgressive photo shock jock.. Joel-Peter Witkin.. these 2 were my favorites.. check them out!

MAO, Thanks for pointing these out..

I didn't know Joel-Peter Witkin had made the leap into full color!!

Somehow his staged sets don't translate as well into color as his early B&W work. What do you think?

I think His black and white work is still unbelievably stunning, however I saw his recent show of new work and must say it has a charm to it's own. I especially enjoyed his recreation of "Raft of The Medusa" with a George Bush look-alike at the helm of the raft sporting an American flag crown.
