Softcover, edition of 300 copies, handnumbered and signed. Photography and design by Werner Amann. WP #16
„Surf Fiction“ is Werner Amann’s unpublished work from 1997. It engages with social reality and image bound-culture in Los Angeles and other urban centers in the US. Beyond a mere documentary or created approach, „Surf Fiction“ interlinks photography with collages, typography, videostills, abrupt breaks and double page spreads – switching with each page turn from one plot to another. The work plays with projections of a myth that regenerates itself from day to day, producing an image of Los Angeles and at the same time a visual reflection on modern reality.
White Press and Werner Amann are happy to announce „Surf Fiction’s“ first official release – faithful to the original 1997 dummy.

"Within this publication, the titles, sequences, and Bay Watch references, become visual gold mines for an epoch in which our whole transition of image acquisition has changed with a clambering effect. Amann is conscious of this. It is implicit in the work and the title itself." (Brad Feuerhelm, ASX)
