Klanten, Robert & Peyerl, Andreas (Editors) . SURREALITY: LOCALIZER 1.2. Berlin, Germany: Die Gestalten Verlag, 1997. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 160 pages. As New/As New.

Pioneering collection of photographs by a group of avant-garde artists. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. A clever production by Robert Klanten and Andreas Peyerl: Oversize-volume format. A tall and handsome book. Shiny-orange thick plastic covers with wavy design, as issued. There is a circular die-cut in the middle which reveals the color image of a Medusa-like figure. Photographs by various contributors. Without DJ, as issued. Presents and catalogues the wonderful, exciting, erotic, and enchanting world of photographic trick effects from 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. "Surreality: Localizer 1.2" is both the presentation and realization of this 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. A "must-have" title for photography collectors. This is an Import title, was not distributed in the United States, and is now collectible. This copy has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. Some of the most talented European photographers of the 21st century. A flawless copy. . ISBN 393112603X. $50.00
