Charlie Engman

SPBH Editions


Available to preorder - this title is due to ship in late October.

In Cursed, Charlie Engman harnesses generative AI’s uncanny distortions of the physical world to explore the pleasure, humour, and horror of the body. This captivating portfolio of images unpicks AI’s characteristic gap between expectation and outcome, challenging our preconceptions of how the world should be and appear. Can simulation and collective knowledge drive innovation and individuation, or does the recycling of images and ideas doom us to repeat our failures? Can AI’s detachment from reality illuminate the blessing and the curse of “real life”?

Cursed stands as a testament to Engman’s visionary role in a rapidly evolving and highly contentious field, offering an immersive exploration of uncharted artistic territories and proposing a new paradigm for the future and possibilities of photography.
