Photographer Joel-Peter Witkin & Painter Jerome Witkin
Witkin and Witkin is a documentary film about creative identical twin brothers, so you may be surprised at how different their lives are.
Both of these adult men are professional artists and each has their own individual style.
Often we hear about twins have a close bond and are so similar that it’s hard to distinguish who is who.
That is not true of the Witkin brothers.
They are both creative, but have grown apart and have spent much of their adult lives estranged from one another.
At a glance, their artistic styles are very different and don’t seem to be related at all.
However, as different as the art appears, there is something at the core that looks as if it is coming from a similar place.
The independent film is interesting both for the art and for the complexities of the paths these individuals have chosen.
