Kuzma Vostrikov and Ajuan Song’s Absolutely Augmented Reality takes as its subject the intersection of fine art, photography, and the idea of authorship through a series of richly saturated, theatrical, and symbolic images that use costume, character, and allegory to create a sense of exploration and melancholic intrigue. In this dream world of strange and alluring portraiture, the viewer is delighted by a host of archetypal images, hybrid creatures, surreal motifs, and canonical postures, as well as inversions of iconic art historic references. Appealing to fine art, design, and photography fans alike, this new book features some one hundred color images from Vostrikov and Song’s previously unpublished collaborative work. Alongside the photographs it features a brief introductory text by art historian Rosa J. H. Berland and critical essays by art critic Anthony Haden-Guest and Lilly Wei, as well as two interviews with the artists conducted by Iona Whittaker and Arnau Salvadó.
