Acid Candy, ALDRIDGE, Miles;
8 ALDRIDGE, Miles; Acid Candy
9071848051 / 9789071848056 
ALDRIDGE, MILES. Acid Candy, Amsterdam: Reflex New Art Gallery, 2008. Oblong folio, edition of 1,000, pp. 124, black cloth boards with blind-stamped lettering on spine and front, color photos, inscribed on the title page by the photographer "For Julia." Glenn O'Brien writes in his introduction: "The reason that Miles Aldridge's photographs are not surrealism is that this is the future and these two states, dream and reality, have resolved themselves in the fabric of consciousness. We live in surreality and the mechanics of mentality, which seamlessly blend traditional forms of perception with increasingly complex external media, have created a transcendent "reality" which is as fictional as it is "documentary."Condition: Lightly worn dust jacket, light wear at boards' edges, slight age toning at leaves' edges
