From the publisher:
 
“Andres Serrano is one of America’s most mythologised contemporary artists. To many, he’s the man responsible for Piss Christ, and a national scandal over government funding of controversial art. For those who look beyond the headlines, he’s a highly accomplished and ever-evolving photographic artist showing us the ordinary in extraordinary ways. With his post-Piss Christ series Nomads, he made studio portraits of New York’s ethnic homeless and juxtaposed them with members of the Klu Klux Klan. In The Morgue series, he dissected violent death and found the human thread on the coroner’s slab, while A History of Sex explored the human mating urge in its infinite variety. 
 
Andres Serrano considers America his greatest achievement. Three years of work produced over a hundred 50- by 60-inch photographic portraits representing the cultural diversity of this immigrant country, as filtered through the critical lens of Serrano. There are celebrities: Arthur Miller, Snoop Dogg, Anna Nicole Smith, BB King, Vanessa del Rio; and ordinary citizens: a pimp, a boy scout, a Muslim housewife, a doctor, a Russian Orthodox Bishop. America is intimate, honest and demanding of a response, like all Serrano’s work. The second half of this big volume, Other work, is a retrospective of Serrano’s previous photographic series. Together these two impressive halves create the whole of Andres Serrano’s artistic oeuvre.”
