This beautiful catalog showcases works by British artist John Stezaker (born 1949) made between 1976 and 2017?interventions into found images dating mostly from the mid-20th century such as film stills, press and publicity photographs, magazines and postcards.

A sense of romance pervades Stezaker’s imagery, whether in the idealization of scenery on a picture postcard, or created by the highly skilled lighting, posing and preparation of a star for a publicity shot, or the minute and all-encompassing technical precision required to shoot a scene of a feature film.

As demonstrated most dramatically by his Love series (2016), Stezaker’s work seduces and ensnares the viewer’s gaze, arresting their perceptual expectations, accessing and questioning their empathetic sense and triggering lateral associations into memory, desire and unease. This catalog features essays by Michael Bracewell and Craig Burnett.
