A creepy and aggressive artist book published by Printed Matter. The cumulative impact of Beronio's intervention into his modified source material is oddly personal and unsettling.

From Printed Matter's website:

"Dark Prospects takes as its source material issues of People, Time, Newsweek, and U.S. News and World Report. While retaining the form of the magazine, the artist dismantles the medium’s visual language by blacking out all references to corporate branding, time (both textually and visually), textual references to location, and facial features of the magazines’ featured stars and advertising props. What’s left is an unforgiving and stuttering sequence of detonated images and textual fragments supporting a skewed visual narrative of lifestyle and politics—modern life stripped bare."
