Publisher's description: Over the course of three years, the Swiss photography duo Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs traveled across the United States to create their own take on the American road trip. Mixing fact and fiction to strange but pleasing effect, the manipulated photographs presented in the third edition of this artist book, The Great Unreal, mesh reality with the duo's fabrication of their own reality. Using a rich inventory of visual American icons, the artists manipulate and deconstruct each photograph to suggest a sense of the unheimlich, or the uncanny, lurking within a familiar and iconic landscape. Their photographic interventions--sometimes crude, sometimes subtle and inspired by random occurrences--can create both mystical scenes as well as images that insist on demystification. The way the artists have sequenced the color and black-and-white photographs in this engaging publication gradually transforms the familiar into a sense of haunted reality.
