David Hockney is famous for his paintings, but his photo-montages also deserve attention. I try to think of the camera as a tool for making marks on a page in the same way as a pencil or a paintbrush, and these 'Joiners' are good examples of this theory in practice. 'Kasmin, Los Angeles, 28th March 1982' and 'My Mother, Bolton Abbey, Nov.82 No.4' show a strikingly cubist approach to the photographic portrait
(I'm not sure if anybody reads this except me, but at least this is a good scrapbook for my ideas.)
These images were gratefully borrowed from Mark Harden's Artchive which is an excellent resource of all things Art.
