Reseña del editor Witkin & Witkin is an intimate and striking book that brings together, for the first time, the work of two American artists: a photographer and a painter that not only share DNA - they are identical twins - but also uncanny thematic parallels. Through different voices, testimonies of the people closest to the brothers, both personally and professionally, the Witkin story is retold by family members, partners, models, students, collectors and promoters of their work.
