12:31 is a photographic series concept by Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott. ‘In 1993, a convicted murderer was executed. His body was given to science, segmented, and photographed for research. Croix and Frank used that footage to create these 7 photographs. An animation of the 1871 slices was played fullscreen on a computer, which was moved around by an assistant while being photographed in a dark environment. The resulting images are long-exposure “light paintings” of the entire cadaver. Stunning work! Prints are for sale for $700 and all proceeds benefit Amnesty International.’
Bo Johan Renck (born 5 December 1966 in Uppsala) is a Swedish director of music videos, TV and film. He is an occasional recording artist using the moniker Stakka Bo.
These photos look both stunning and intriguing but I know nothing about Le Turk. Anyone have any information on this guy?

Despite Greenberg’s known disdain for patriarchal constructs, ‘Commentary & Dissent’ is a tongue-in-cheek reference to Jill Greenberg’s patrillineal history. Her husband’s grandmother was the managing editor of ‘Commentary’ during its progressive days, and her father-in-law was a contributor to ‘Dissent’. The images in this exhibition aggressively reassert the power of the image to confront and attack the viewer, and affirm Greenberg’s parctice as a transgressive, yet Pop, artist. The exhibit comprises several parallel series and related works. The largest project represented is ‘everyonehateseveryone’. Whereas some of Greenberg’s previous series showed animals to have human personalities, these depict people behaving like animals.
