Now you know how much we love the Danish-born, New York-based photo-artist Asger Carlsen, but it was a shock to find we had never really celebrated his intensely brilliant Wrong series on the site in any great depth. Fortunately now is the perfect time to revisit this project as it’s set to open in Cologne gallery Ruttowski68 next week. If you’re a longtime fan then take a few moments to remind yourself of his matchless talent to create funny, arresting images that stay with you like a lovesick guy following his ex round a nightclub. And if you’ve never come across Asger before, get ready for you life to get measurably better.
Wrong runs from June 8 to July 15.
