Magical Surfaces: The Uncanny in Contemporary Photography publication.


To mark the occasion of the exhibition, Magical Surfaces: The Uncanny in Contemporary Photography, Parasol unit has published a comprehensive, limited edition publication.

The works of the seven artists selected for this exhibition, Sonja Braas, David Claerbout, Elger Esser, Julie Monaco, Jörg Sasse, Stephen Shore and Joel Sternfeld, all reveal in varying forms the idea of the uncanny – from the magical to the strange and fearful. Each of the exhibiting artists has chosen their own process, either manipulating photographic imagery or creating such settings, which prompts us to marvel at the many ways the uncanny can occur in surfaces and realise once more that any photograph is indeed authored.

Printed in a limited edition of 500 hand-numbered copies, this comprehensive book includes essays by Ziba Ardalan, David Claerbout and Marta Dahó, an independent curator and teacher of History of Photography based in Barcelona.

Edited by Ziba Ardalan for Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art, London.

Hardcover, 275 x 265 mm.

100 pages full colour, coated Paper 150 gsm.
