As somebody who has worked as a crime scene photographer before pursuing a career in the art world, Asger’s story is far from being usual. Born in Denmark and now based in New York, Asger created a surreal hyper-reality inhabited by trans-species multi-headed monsters, crudely constructed wooden-legged figures and other fairly disturbing creatures.
”I’m willing to have a fall out with the traditions of photography for the purposes of making a new kind of image.”
Working with real models and props built by himself, he only uses technology to digitally merge photos, thus opening the gates to the extraordinary & haunting parallel reality of his. Asger’s world might be disturbing, but it is brave and revolutionary too. In his own words: ”I’m willing to have a fall out with the traditions of photography for the purposes of making a new kind of image.”
