David Hockney

David Hockney (Born in 1937) is a English Photographer, who specializes in photocollage.

David Hockney uses segmentation to emphasize the movement of the subject. The segments have been arranged to make the movement appear in a similar way to motion blur, as each segment shows a different movement. There is also use of repetition; this could be to show the repetitiousness of ice skating, or simply to make it appear more surreal. The segments also work well to accentuate shape, this is because Hockney has cut the original images into segments that the Ice Skater is demonstrating shape. Hockney has used a complementary colour scheme, (Blue and White), so the image is not striking to the eye, this may be intentional or unintentional.
