The lines between normal and abnormal are getting blurrier. Images of distortion and narratives of negative consequences have long been personal obsessions. I want to know everything about anomalous figures and uncanny circumstances; things like dwarf mummies, scarification rituals, snake handlers, tree burls, three headed bats, stylite saints, trodlodytes, tarzan, mermaids, madness and the pearly gates.
