From the Acknowledgments- "An exhibition of the works of Joel-Peter Witkin is, by its very nature, in terms of the images as well as the photographic research, an event of exceptional significance, at any moment and in any expositional circumstance. The uniqueness of this show, its difference from other exhibitions, lies in the fact that this collection of his works manages to present an almost complete anthology of his oeuvre. Indeed, for the breadth of its offering of photographs both known and unknown, it is the first exhaustive survey of the work this artist has produced up to 1995."
