Description of book: Strange Paradise ambles between the peculiar and the familiar, as Charlie Rubin works intuitively to create unexpected combinations with idiosyncratic logic. Taking perception as his waypoint, Rubin presents a kaleidoscopic body of work that explores the convergence of the actual and the artificial. While some photographs are manipulated, many are left unchanged, serving to pace and balance the work, and to further question what is real and what is altered.

The best thing about self-publishing: Making all of the decisions , small and large , to coincide with your vision.
