"Bateman started taking actual carte de visite photos and adding elements from his imagination. The result was a series entitled “Mechanical Brides of the Uncanny” (a reference to philosopher Marshall McLuhan) – carte de visite pictures of a cowboy robot, a young girl with a robot dog, a robot that looks like it stepped out of a Hieronymus Bosch painting.

“If you think about it, every photograph is about the past,” Bateman said. “But how can you make a photograph about the future, or from the future?”"
