This is an experimental image which I created in the style of David Hockney’s photocollage’s. I used several images which had the subject in different stages of movement, to create surreal sections showing differing movements. The process I used was to cut the original images up digitally on Adobe Photoshop, and then build them up into a collage on a blank document. For this image I decided to not use repetition and emphasize the how movements change drastically. Each segment is a different size in order to highlight the variation in movement. Similarly to the David Hockney Ice Skater image, colours complement each other and changes are subtle. However, I feel that photocollages distract from the fundamental elements that make up an image, although they emphasize each movement of the subject and create a surreal image. Nevertheless, the original images can produce a similar effect.
