David Hockney Mother 1, Yorkshire Moors

This is a photo montage created by David Hockney in 1985. It is influenced by the cubism movement. I thought that this was a very interesting portrait. Although it is fragmented and images are repeated and different sizes you can still see how the women would look if it was just a straight photo. If it were a simple picture if would be pretty straight forward of just an older lady. However, since it is broken up it adds a lot more complexity to this piece. It has become pretty popular style and if you go to this website,, you can "Hockneyizer" your own pictures to mimic his style.
