Tom Benson – Visionary
William S Burroughs print + book
Tom Benson (1935-1999), Sweden’s surrealist master, created a multitude of phantasmagoric images based on fictive characters and dream-like landscapes. Using his powerful photographs in mind-altering collages, he opened up and displayed inner vistas saturated with mystery, adventure and eroticism. Benson’s rich visions mercilessly catapult the viewer into unchartered psychic and emotional territories filled with intelligence, humorous twists and turns, sexual fantasies, eerie people and spooky environments – all elegantly woven together in a turbulent tapestry celebrating the human imagination.
Tom Benson: Visionary contains 80 of his strongest images, and also includes an introduction by Carl Michael von Hausswolff, an interview with Benson’s widow Marja Sipola Cuss, and personal mementos by Benson’s muses and models Annika von Hausswolff, Helena Eriksson and Lotta Antonsson.
Published 2017. 21 x 21 cm. 96 pages in colour and black & white. Hard-bound. Limited to 23 copies. Each copy comes with a Tom Benson print of the image "William dreaming", signed in verso by Marja Sipola Cuss. The print is 24 x 30 cm.
