American photographer and artist Andres Serrano knows how to control public reaction. His provocative and fascinating photographic work continue to raise curious and dubious brows, with critics here and there debate his photographic prowess.
Known for his use of feces, bodily fluids as well as corpses, Serrano likes to draw the eyes to issues that matter -- contemporary reality. For him, the human condition is often overlooked with the fancies of art.
His aesthetics echo paintings and photographs alike from Old Masters, but fashioned in a way they are recent. His eyes follow people from the gutter to the stars, moving and unsettling the comfortable and pampered.
Catch his show Revealing Reality: Andres Serrano at the Huis Marseille, Amsterdam on June 10.
The show will run through September 3.
