Chris DAZE Ellis Tallest man in the world. Fattest woman. Bearded ladies. Living skeletons. A man suffering from phocomelia, or flipper-like limbs.

by Allan Appel | Jan 22, 2015 1:26 pm

Allan Appel Photo Artist Audrey Kantrowitz was always disappointed that the deformed protagonists she met in art and literature just didn’t get the girl.

TEMPEST Strikes Library

by Allan Appel | Jan 9, 2015 12:12 pm

Allan Appel Photo Oil spills, grenades, volleys of bullets. The stifling of protest, the double-speak that flattens meaning out of language and renders it impotent. Weapons of mass destruction and the dangerous, hot red impulse in every human heart.
