Salvation : The Holy Land


 » Andres Serrano ( born 1950 in New York) is one of the most celebrated representatives of international contemporary photography and art. Religion, sexuality, and death are pervasive elements of his œuvre.(…) An invitation to Israel also widened his artistic strategy : using a Mamiya RB67 camera, he approached the subject of religious faith via the landscape and the people. He visited sacred sites, Bethlehem, Ramallah, Galilee, and the Dead Sea, coming closer to people step by step, picture by picture, following them through their everyday lives and to celebrations, to ultimately depict the traces of the identity of an entire nation in their faces in intense studio photographs. » (extrait de la 4ème de couverture).
