Photographer #171: Asger Carlsen

Asger Carlsen, 1973, Denmark, released a monograph with the title Wrong. The images inside the book seem to be images that anyone could take. They are shot with the built-in flash of a simple camera resembling photographs that one can find in everyone's home. However, the images of Asger are "wrong", they contain elements that are impossible and it's is hard to see how the photographer has achieved this. Carlsen' photography is disturbing, humorous and well composed. The following images come from the book Wrong and the series Hester.
