Serrano fuses the sacred and the secular in such a way that one cannot easily tell if the artist is profaning the sacred or raising the parochial to a divine level. "Istanbul Sisters" is one such image that prompts the viewer to address the obvious helplessness in the subjects’ expression, in conjunction with the choice of dress–the only contextual clue as to their burden.

Andres Serrano (b. 1950, New York) is an American photographer and artist who is most well known for his photographs of corpses and his use of feces and bodily fluids in his work. Serrano, from a half Honduran and half Afro-Cuban background, considers himself to be a self-taught photographer and his most famous piece of work was “Piss Christ,” which featured a crucifix submerged in the artist’s urine.
