John Stezaker, Film Stills
British artist Stezaker’s latest book comprehensively catalogs works in his series of film still collages, a project that began in 1979. The phenomenally popular series moves with Stezaker’s changing interests, using stills from classic American-period Hitchcock films as raw material before shifting towards the indistinguishable mass of 1940s and early 1950s low-budget studio films. Featuring collages based on a combination of film still excisions and superimpositions, this volume includes previously unpublished works. Bringing together Stezaker’s earliest film still collages to his most recent, this publication follows on from Ridinghouse titles Masks and Marriages, with full color illustrations accompanied by an essay and interview between David Campany and the artist.
