Knopf, 1984. Hardcover. 288 pages. 31 x 31 cm. Text in English. Used. VG · Minor signs of wear at dustjacket. David Hockney spent some time (March 1981 to June 1983) to experimentation with the camera. And this awesome huge book shows his amazing cubist-like photocollages fruits of Hockney’s labors of those years. Cameraworks is an impressive book presenting the many photographs and collages David Hockney created. He uses as many as a hundred or more photographs that form a grid-like construction of his favorite subjects: from intimate images with friends and family, pools, still lifes, until  landscapes, dizzying panoramas and architectural images which appear as a painting. 'True to Life', the text by Lawrence Weschler (the New Yorker art critic), brings the artist' thoughts and ideas to sparkling life.  First American edition in very good condition!
