“How do you represent things like AIDS, sexuality and death — or is this even an artist’s job? The Surrealists drew heavily from Freudian psychoanalysis to depict dreams and distortions of time and space in their photographs, as well as fear and death. [Jimmy] DeSana’s work owes a clear debt to Surrealism, but it updates these things, acknowledging how we dream differently in the age of Technicolor mass media.” Martha Schwendener • New York Times
