Are we becoming a faceless society?

John Stezaker re-examines the function of the photographic image. As an audience, we rely too much on the photograph to represent the truth, and Stezaker encourages the audience to look beyond the facade of the image in his work. Using Marcel Duchamp's 'ready-made' method of art practice, Stezaker appropriates images from magazines, books and postcards to conceal the identity of his subject.
