Jimmy De Sana was an American artist, best known for his presence at the punk art scene in the East Village in the 70s and 80s. His photography was often classified as anti-art. The themes De Sana chose were usually connected to the perception of the human body – his capturing of it was often described as ranging from the savagely explicit to purely symbolic. The introduction for his photo book Submission was written by William S. Burroughs. Jimmy De Sana died in 1990.
