About the Book
This magazine revisits Blowfly Girl's infamous sexual practices from the perspective of a poet, rather than a pornographer. The story is told in the disquieting surrealist style of writers such as Georges Bataille, Octave Mirbeau, and JG Ballard, and is illustrated with a sequence of striking close-up images of maggots and blowflies feeding in a landscape of dead flesh.
Neal Auch has spent his artistic career using photography and prose to explore the unlikely beauty of death, decay, and ruin. His imagery draws considerably from the iconography and philosophy of 17th-century Dutch still life paintings, and his works have been exhibited in galleries and featured in fine art books, alongside the works of prominent figures in the transgressive art community, including Clive Barker and Andres Serrano. Neal holds a PhD in theoretical physics from McGill University and lives in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, with his spouse, child, and bloated collection of death things.
