Donigan Cumming

Chorus & Les Pleureurs

Peggy Gale, Touching on Donigan Cumming:

“Cumming seeks to know about death and the inroads of age and illness, drink or drugs; he studies unwitting delusion and the circumstances of self-destruction.

Yet his subjects are survivors, real people living their lives despite their potential for squalor. We may feel guilty watching here, a little unclean at the contact, virtual though it may be. At the same time we are fascinated to know more, to see more thoroughly, and our curiosity can offend no one: these images already exist.”
