DescriptionTrained as a photographer, Terry Border left the commercial world for story-telling. His complex vignettes are made of the simplest, everyday items: a jar of spices, a cigarette stub, a flower, a snack food. These sly photos range from whimsical scenes to sexy scenarios, the sad truths to the hilarious happenings in everyday life. In the tradition of bestselling humorous photography books like Chicks with Baggage, Play with Your Food, and Hello Cupcake!, this volume will surprise you with every viewing. A sunflower missing a petal becomes the tortured artist Van Gogh; an egg arrives to visit his mom only to discover roast chicken on the table; when confronted by a jar of peanut butter, peanuts hold a wake; and hot dogs leave behind their own brand of little presents. Marshmallows, wine corks, bread, soap, rocks, and tea bags--no common household item is safe from the twisted (wire) mind behind these uncommon creations!

Reviews for Bent Objects
Bent Objects is Brilliant!
Terry Border is one of the great artists of this generation, photographic or otherwise. I only very recently stumbled across his captivating images but I'm already hooked. This book is an absolute winner, very very funny. I haven't been this in awe of a single artist since I first read one of Bill Watterson's 'Calvin and Hobbes' collections. I can't recommend it enough! ***** by Morgan O'Brien
