They Shall Cast Out Demons by photographer Bill Burke is a photo book published by Nexus Press 1983
Softcover, 32pg. color and B&W
8.5" x 10.5"
"In this unusual book, Bill Burke has combined his photographs of religious snake handlers with a selection of his explicit pictures of animal and human surgery. He interweaves this work with excerpts from the Bible, quoting St. Mark who wrote of casting out demons. Also included are passages from Richard Selzer's Mortal Lessons, in which Selzer writes of entering the body during surgery. A beautifully designed book with full page bleeds, collages, and drawings that contribute to Burke's unsettling view."
