New Photography Book on Cutting-Edge Creativity


Here at My Modern Met, we’re big proponents of cutting-edge creativity especially when it comes to the art of photography. That’s why we were excited to hear about a brand new book that celebrates contemporary artists that blur the lines between the real and the surreal, a book that showcases groundbreaking digital masterpieces that have never been seen before.

Altered Images New Visionaries in 21st Century Photography provides incredible, full-page imagery from 50 contributing photographers in 18 different countries.
