Funny and disturbing contemporary photography by American artist Alison Brady
This very well known artist from New York aims to mock through unconscious emotions, desires and sexual compulsions. Each of the photograph contains surreal elements as well as aesthetic, which turn them into the very real moments. Could even say it’s an illusion and pure eye trickery!

Tom Phillips - A Humument (1966-73)
“In 1966 Phillips set himself a task: to find a second-hand book for threepence and alter every page by painting, collage and cut-up techniques to create an entirely new version. He found his threepenny novel in a junkshop on Peckham Rye, South London. This was an 1892 Victorian obscurity titled A Human Document by W.H Mallock and he titled his altered book A Humument.
The first version of all 367 treated pages was published in 1973 since when there have been four revised editions. A Humument is now one of the best known and loved of all 20th Century artist’s books and is regarded as a seminal classic of postmodern art.”
