"Pain recognizes pain"–Assaf Pocker

Assaf Pocker was born in 1958 in Be'er Sheva, Israel. He studied Photography and Art at Jerusalem's Bezalel Academy of Art and Design and worked as a successful photojournalist in Israel throughout the 1980s. After moving to the U.S., Pocker has been working on his series, Scar Tissue, to be published by Nazraeli Press. The subject matter is pain, raw pain, and the images are very intense. You can view them here

before to see the site and more works i thought it was one more steriotype of those thousands of works we have seen sinse the end of the 80s exploding pain , horror , aberration , alternative lifes . any thing of this culture post- punk , post- gothic , post-neonazi ... using and exploring real people's life to "shock" and amaize the tipical art world's people that visits art gallerys and love those fake marginal speachs so easy to read .

but no . it seems to be a authentic , honest and good work .
