The backdrop photograph is by the American photographer Joel Peter Witkin. The photograph is called Un Santo Oscuro. He’s one of the most controversial artists of his time due to the subjects and ‘props’ he has used to create his art. I understand he‘s never worked from a computer - always film. The man in the picture was a thalidomide victim born without skin, without arms, without legs, without hair, without eye lashes. His face is like a mask.I love this photograph, Karen.
And pardon my ignorance but I have to ask - what - or from where - is the image in your 'background art' (which, by the way, is soooo cool - and so à propos for the thematic content of your image)?
Not that I belong to the powers that be, but it's great to see you here! Matt @MoonMind please don't be too hard on himCan I just sort of sneak in here after the first third of the month is over? I wanted a break after the April challenge, but looking over all your awesome work has me wanting to get back into a daily practice, at least for a while. I submit this one as my offering to please the council.
