EYE CANDY

Getting Biblical


Don’t expect to see Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin’s illustrated bible at Sunday school. The London-based artists, who will be featured in MoMA’s “New Photography 2013” group show next month, overlaid particularly suggestive passages of the King James with images of tragedy from the Archive of Modern Conflict, creating an effect that’s alternately saucy and chilling.

“Holy Bible” is available from Mack next month in the U.S.
