  • 1. David Hockney
  • 2. Photo joinery
    He used photo collage by Using varying numbers of small Polaroid photos of a subject
    One of his first photomontages was of his mother
    He took photographs different perspectives and at slightly different times which created an image like cubism
    He’s done this with landscapes and portraits
    These photomontage works appeared mostly between 1970 and 1986. He referred to them as "joiners“
    He began this style of art by taking Polaroid photographs of one subject and arranging them into a grid layout. The subject would actually move while being photographed so that the piece would show the movements of the subject seen from the photographer's perspective
  • 3. Some of his work
  • 4. This photo shows a portrait of David Hockney’s mother, he’s created it in his style of photo joinery, he’s used about 30 separate images to create the composition, it makes the photo have a sense of time in it because all of the pictures are taking at different angles and perspectives. My opinion of this photo is that it I think the way that he’s put the photo’s together works well also I like the way that some parts are darker than other bits and also that other bits are quite light as well.
    My Mother, Bolton Abbey, 1982
  • 5. This is a photomontage of a street, its once again done in Hockney’s style of photo joinery, this image also is done in the style of cubism, it gives you the sense of being in the photo its like your you can see the dimensions of the photo, because of this I like it because I like the way that it makes you feel like your in the photo.

  • 6. This image shows the photomontage of Pearblossom Highway, this composition again is done in the style of cubism because you can see the dimensions of the photo well, it gives you a sense of it being 3D, I like the way that he's used different colours in the sky which he has probably taken at different times of the day.

  • 7. On this slide the image shows the Merced River, its been done in Hockney’s photo joinery style, it once again shows a slight following of the cubism style as it looks 3D because all the separate photos are taking at different angles and at different times, I like this composition because of the way the photos are taken it makes the image come to life.
    “The Merced River, Yosemite Valley”, 1982
  • 8. This photo shows a family playing scrabble, it follows the similar style of the other photos. But in this one he puts together so the photos create an unusual shape and leaves gaps, so it makes you think about what’s in the parts of the photo’s that are missing
