'Heaven or Hell by Joel-Peter Witkin places the artist's work alongside a deeply involved group of artists who expressed the misery of the human condition with metaphysical meaning and mysticism. From Goya, Bellange, Rops to even Rembrandt and Picasso this collection surveys Witkin's work as rooted as a continuation of a specific lineage of art history. Included are intriguing essays (both French and English) that take the reader further into the mindset and intent of Witkin and his work and include several written pieces from Witkin himself. The printing of Heaven or Hell is also astounding, bringing together one of the strongest collections from the artist's vast archive.' - Antone Dolezal, from photo-eye newsletter
