John Stezaker (b. 1949, Worcester) lives and works in London and studied at the Slade School of Art. He has been influential to a number of developments in art over the last three decades, from Conceptual Art to Appropriation art, to the re-emergence of collage. Using found photographs and printed material, Stezaker's collages involve various interventions such as excisions, maskings, cuts, rotations and visual concordances. Juxtaposing disparate sources, his work creates compelling new images. Stezaker won the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize in 2012.
