The New Yorker November 2012

The photographer has long had a keen, if not entirely healthy, interest in celebrity, so when he heard about the vandalism of figures at a Dublin wax museum, they made an irresistible subject. Although the still-lifes of slashed and shattered heads and hands are enlarged to a ridiculously large scale, the images are as compelling as they are crass. Among the ruins are Michael Jackson, Bill Clinton, Ayatollah Khomeini, and Marlene Dietrich (a ringer for Cindy Sherman), but the spectacular, thirteen-part series of the decapitated cast of the Last Supper is hard to beat. Through Jan. 19.
