Jimmy De Sana

( November 12, 1949 – July 27, 1990 )

Was an American artist and the key figure
in the East Village punk art scene of the 1970s and 1980s.

De Sana's photography has been described as "anti-art"
in its approach to capturing images of the human body,
in a manner ranging from "savagely explicit to purely symbolic"

"A photograph is how much you want to lie,
 how far you want to stretch the truth about the object.
 And, as photography is always based on real objects, 
 it lends itself, by means of technique or manipulation, 
 to explorations of what may appear to be an absence of reality, 
 balancing on an ambiguous line between concrete and abstract space, 
 between reality and illusion in a way that no other medium is able to do."
