From a technical point of view, anyone working in a digital darkroom should purchase this volume simply to study the seamless color composites that Johan has
produced. Artistically, he has striven to unsettle the viewer, creating "surreal and narrative tableaux of corrupted youth." "My photographs are composites of multiple-image fragments that I digitally manipulate and combine, including both images that I have photographed myself and found images. By combining different elements, my objective is to create artificial scenarios that appear vaguely familiar and produce numerous associations."--Johan. Look for the cover image on a recent cover of Art & Auction magazine. The limited edition (Cat# TT113L, $750.00) of 50 copies comes with an original color print in a clamshell box.
