Celebrated for his brilliant use of old film stills, portraits, postcards and other found imagery, John Stezaker engages with this exquisitely selected found material through inversion, excision, incision, fusion and accidental damage. In this extensive monograph/exhibition catalog, Stezaker focuses on the dialectics innate in the work; life and death, seeing and blindness, male and female, love and betrayal, portrait and landscape, and more. Included are works ranging from 1977 up to the most recent series from 2010, introducing lesser-known groups such as ‘Sublimes’ and ‘Lost Tracks’ alongside his famous ongoing series including ‘Masks’ and ‘Marriages’. The largest monographic catalogue on Stezaker to date, the publication features texts by Dawn Ades and Michael Bracewell and a conversation between the artist and Daniel Herrmann and Christophe Gallois, with over 80 images of the artists’ work.
