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.
