John Stezaker


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.
