The world is full of interesting and amazing places but most of us still travel to some warm sea countries only to return from them sun tanned and with a bunch of the photos of the type “Me on the Beach”, “Me and Some Flower”, “Me and a Glass of Wine in a Hotel Lobby” and so on. As for me, I feel the need to receive some unusual impressions which I will carry with me without the help of any photographs. One day I will visit these places which make people doubt that they are still on the Earth.
Asger Carlsen is a Danish photographer who currently lives and works in New York. Carlsen creates the most absurd and surreal images of today. His style is recognizable. The portraits are retouched, the objects are redone so that they have nothing in common with reality. People he depicts have many eyes and multiple heads, some of them suffer from Grave’s disease, some have wooden legs. These images are bizarre and weird. At the same time the images being manipulated by Carlsen seem to be very realistic.
