The exciting, erotic, and enchanting world of photographic trick effects. Through a selection of the work of contemporary photographers such as Floria Sigismondi, Jim Rakete, Ali Kepenek, Ralf Schmerberg, Daniel Josefsohn, and Joachim Gern, among many others, the medium of photography itself is redefined as being beyond the boundaries of fashion, journalism, and even art photography. Both the presentation and realization of a new photographic genre that uses digital effects for maximum aesthetic effect. Since the camera was invented in Europe (France), it is fitting that its future course is also being explored there by a motley group of very talented artists and photographers. Blurring the distinction between reality and fantasy, the result is a sensuous and sensual delight. An absolute "must-have" title for photography book collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. Some of the most brilliant European photographers of our time. A flawless copy. ISBN 393112603X. Bookseller Inventory # 5570
Synopsis: The book catalogues a weird and wonderful world of photographic trickery from a selection of fascinating contemporary photographers like Floria Sigismondi, Jim Rakete, Ali Kepenek, Ralf Schmerberg, Daniel Josefsohn and Joachim Gern. The medium itself is unassumingly redefined, well beyond the boundaries of fashion, journalistic or art photography. Surreality is the creation of a new photographic genre for a future-based generation and an open mind.
Review: "Essentially a glorified portfolio of computer-generated or digitally manipulated work by 40-odd photographers, almost all of whom work in Berlin, `Surreality´ enshrines the German capital´s hallowed reputation..." -- Ken Coupland in WIRED 9/98
