The world of surrealism was often populated by hybrid organic shapes and continues to find a home in contemporary creations like those of Michel Paysant, Tobias Putrih and François Roche.

The post-war period is also particularly fruitful in Germany. In the 1950s, subjective photography, pioneered by Otto...
