Mask Series by John Stezaker

I went to see John Stezaker's exhibition at Whitechapel Gallery on Friday and here's my post on it! Stezaker is a British artist who primarily works in collage, using photographs and film stills to create new compositions. My favourite series is "Mask" as I find the work quite surreal and humourous, but extremely impressed by the attention to detail of facial shapes and features that he displays. 

With the new image on top, you can almost piece together a fictitious face for these people, obviously influenced by the nature of the image, but it is persuasive and changes perceptions. 

Check out some of my favourites below:
