First English edition, boldly signed by Witkin in black pen on the half-title. A French edition was published simultaneously. Witkin responds to works by other photographers, from Weegee and Cartier-Bresson, to Lewis Carroll, Brassaï, Man Ray, Arbus, Fenton and Walker Evans. Witkin’s morbid but fascinating works are printed in counterpoint with the images that inspired them.
