Highlighting surrealistic photographs produced from the early 1980s to 1992 by noted Spanish artist Fontcuberta (b. 1955), this catalogue presents six series of works that range from sequences of photographs and texts documenting imaginary discoveries of often bizarre animals and plants to images of silhouetted human figures superimposed on familiar works of art. Two introductory discussions of Fontcuberta's philosophical concerns and his innovative use of photography to explore concepts of the natural and the artificial are supplemented by individual essays evaluating the featured series.
