Witkin is a fine Art photographer that embraces in his work a wide range of references and inspirations, such as Giotto and classicism, to tell stories of social outcasts: “I love the unloved”, he declared. Born in 1939, he says to make work just to share what he loves, rather than making money. Despite many of his pictures have surrealist references, he doesn’t consider himself a surrealist and doesn’t share the same ideas of the artists.
