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 gilt softcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Robert Klanten and Andreas Peyerl: Oversize-volume format. Shiny orange thick plastic covers with wavy design, as issued.

Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Berlin, Germany to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents and catalogues "Surreality Localizer 1.2". 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 is in especially fine condition: Clean, crsip, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. Some of the most brilliant European photographers of our time. A flawless copy. . ISBN 393112603X. $40.00
