Sang Bleu Although Danish-born artist Asger Carlsen works with a camera, one should not think of him strictly as a photographer. His work morphs and distorts images of the human figure like balls of clay, blending skin textures, bony protrusions, limbs, hair, and fluids into a seamless collage. Drawing on Surrealist conceptions of the body’s form, Carlsen has been quoted as saying that he hopes to destroy the notion of what the photograph is. Using heavy manipulation via Photoshop, his distortions toy less with the idea of the photo as a material object and more with the notion of an image being a document and the body as a material muse.
