David Hockney - is an English painter, draughtsman, printmaker, stage designer and photographer. this is one of his series of photo montages, which he has termed joiners. I really like it because it gives you that wide range effect just like if you were standing in his place, unlike standard cameras you cannot capture a wide area and be close up at the same time.
John Heartfield - was an artist. He was a pioneer in the use of art as a political weapon. Some of his photomontages were anti-Nazi anti-Fascist statements. Montage is a useful narrative technique. By using several images, each with its own meaning, a more complex story. I like this montage because the x-ray is showing what he most desires and also what he is signified as. I think the x-ray is suggesting that he does not have a heart and that he is empty inside.
Hannah Höch - was a German Dada artist. She is best known for her work of the Weimar period, when she was one of the originators of photomontage. In this image has collaged each picture with its own meaning, creating a landscape envirment and two portraits to tell her narrative.
Montage is the technique where different images are combined to create a single new composition. Montage is similar to collage in which various image elements are stuck onto a single ground* * ‘ground’ is the term painters use for the surface of the canvas or other material which they paint on.
Henry Peach Robinson used at least 5 black & white negatives to make his montage in 1858. I like this image because all the images look so natural in the surroundings, I looks like and ordinary family in their living space and also interact with the other image well.
Angus McBean,- was a Welsh photographer, associated with surrealism. Before digital image manipulation, to make a photographic montage required many hours of skilled work in the darkroom. I like this because he has used an object to interact with the photo of the woman and also the colour gradient making the lightest area around the object to focus the viewers eye.
