"[Gaga Stigmata has] very modern, edgy photography to free flowing, urban narratives without censure to analytical essays, et cetera—like Gaga, imagination without ... limits. And the beauty is that anyone can submit work to the site, so artists and writers from all over the [world] have joined this experiment." -The Declaration.org

"Since March 2010, [Gaga Stigmata] has churned out the most intense ongoing critical conversation on [Lady Gaga]."

  2. These are incredible. Gaga Stigmata FTW. Were these done exclusively for y'all?

  3. Ms. Yoshida never works on commission, so no, they weren't exclusively created for us. But when we approached her she sent us several of her most recent images that related in really wonderful ways to Gaga's couture, and we got to pick from those. Wait til you see the work in the book--it's absolutely breathtaking!
