Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Markus Bosshard, Lionel Bovier, Jürg Trösch. Text by David Campany.

English artist John Stezaker (born 1949) reexamines various relationships to the photographic image—as documentation of truth, purveyor of memory and symbol of modern culture. In his collages, Stezaker appropriates images found in books, magazines and postcards, and uses them as "readymades." Through his elegant juxtapositions, Stezaker adopts the content and contexts of the original images to convey his own witty and poignant meanings. In this new volume, Stezaker started with found images from Hollywood’s golden era. Using publicity shots of classic film icons, the artist splices and overlaps famous faces, creating hybrid stars that dissociate the familiar and take on an uncanny quality, destabilizing our idealization of celebrity through work both surreal and grotesque. The volume includes an essay by writer, curator and artist David Campany.

John Stezaker: The 3rd Person ArchiveJohn Stezaker: The 3rd Person Archive

Published by Walther König.

John Stezaker has been collecting photographic city views from the 1920s and 30s for 30 years, focusing on subjects photographed by chance. Here, he presents hundreds of mostly stamp-size details, miniatures that hint at the fates and encounters of long-forgotten people caught in urban labyrinths.

John Stezaker: FumettiJohn Stezaker: Fumetti

Published by Walther König.
Foreword by Janneke de Vries. Text by Barry Schwabsky, David Lillington, William Horner.

In the Fumetti series Stezaker continues his work with publicity film portraits. Instead of working with old bromides, however, he takes portraits from film annuals of the 1950s and 1960s and deconstructs perfect hair and makeup to make monstrous hybrids. Fumetti is an Italian comic tradition using photos instead of illustrations.

Rubell Family Collection

Published by Rubell Family Collection.
Text by Mark Coetzee, Michael Bracewell, Barry Schwabsky.

Combing the aisles of flea markets, used-book stores and postcard vendors, London-based artist John Stezaker filters and selects images that have a strong sense of déjà vu--Hollywood film stars of a bygone age, postcards of historical monuments, nature scenes and curiosities. Working with these faded images, he sets up compositions that seem to arbitrarily combine disparate components. Through these obstructions of action and recognition, Stezaker sets the viewer free to investigate the subconscious, the psychological, the philosophical--free from the actual. All of the work collected in this volume--published on the occasion of the artist's first solo exhibition at a public institution in the United States--is drawn exclusively from the internationally renowned Rubell Collection, Miami.
