Denmark-born/New York-based photographer Asger Carlsen creates an alternate universe of confusion through photography where everyday scenarios become disturbing hallucinations. He has gained a cult following for his offbeat black-and-white photographs artfully altered and distorted with dark absurdist humor.
Due to his mind-bending visions of the human body even the tamest of his works reveal something deeply unsettling beneath the surface. Carlsen’s unconventional portraits offer a glimpse into society’s perception of hyper-reality and constructed beauty standards.
What do you think about his works…do they freak you out?
