  • This is probably a closer description of how we see the world - from multiple viewpoints that are then pieced together by our mind. In this joiner by David Hockney he has tried to create this effect out of 24 Polaroid prints. He did this because he was interested in how we see and depict space and time. His is interested in how we turn a 3 dimensional world into a 2 dimensional image, how perspective is used in western art and how space is treated differently in non-western art. He did not particularly make joiners because he liked the novel effect of using photographs in this way. However, he did like the way this technique allowed the viewer to read space. He sometimes laid the images out in a neat grid. - See more at: http://thedelightsofseeing.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/cubism-joiners-and-multiple-viewpoint.html#sthash.NvXipbUO.dpuf
  • Hockney would have had to bend down to photograph the floor, climb up ladders to photograph the street signs and walk down the highway to photograph the horizon. All this took him 8 days so he did not only warped space and distance but also showed the passing of time in one image. The image also showed the scene from  multiple viewpoints - just like way we see the world - See more at: http://thedelightsofseeing.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/cubism-joiners-and-multiple-viewpoint.html#sthash.NvXipbUO.dpuf

  • 8. How do you see the world? Look around you - do you see the scene in front of you as a whole scene, a neat little square with every thing visible at once - just like a photograph or painting? Or do you see a variety of elements and fragments?
  • 9. David Hockney 'Pearblossom Highway, 11th to 18th April 1986
  • 10. Hockney would have had to bend down to photograph the floor, climb up ladders to photograph the street signs and walk down the highway to photograph the horizon. All this took him 8 days so he did not only warped space and distance but also showed the passing of time in one image. The image also showed the scene from multiple viewpoints - just like way we see the world.
  • 11. Photographers influenced by Hockney
  • 12. TASK: Create a joiner Technique 1: Photograph the whole scene from three angles. In Photoshop we will cut sections from these three images and layer them. Technique 2: Photograph different sections of he image separately and piece together in Photoshop like a jigsaw.
