Does Asger Carlsen‘s camera capture a hallucinatory dimension or is he toying with us? The Danish-born, New York-based photographer has a twisted view of the world, which he exhibited at Stockholm’s V1 Gallery this spring and shares in his new book, Wrong. Recently released by Morel, the savvy British publisher that previously put out books by Ryan McGinley, Ed Templeton, and Stella Vine, Wrong offers a surreal selection of Carlsen’s seamlessly doctored images. Through the artist’s digital manipulation, ostriches become part human, people sport stick legs, and dogs attack funky sculptures.

Even though they look truthful, Carlsen’s pictures are all wrong. As Tiny Vice’s Tim Barber says in the introduction to the book, “There is nothing out of the ordinary in these photographs except everything.”
