John Stezaker

Really want to check this exhibition out at the Whitechapel Gallery.

Taking classic movie stills, vintage postcards and book illustrations,
Stezaker makes collages to give old images a new meaning.
By adjusting, inverting and slicing separate pictures together
to create unique new works of art, Stezaker explores the subversive force of found images.
Stezaker’s famous Mask series fuses the profiles of glamorous sitters with caves,
hamlets, or waterfalls, making for images of eerie beauty.
