Publisher's Description

A fully updated new edition of this classic in-depth study of the pioneering art form of photomontage by renowned art historian Dawn Ades.

Manipulation of the photograph is as old as photography itself. It has embodied and enlivened political propaganda, satire, and commercial art and helped visualize the “brave new world” of the future through surreal and fantastic images. Photomontage has been embraced by artists from the late nineteenth century to today, including the Dadaists, John Heartfield, El Lissitzky, Hannah Höch, and Alexander Rodchenko. In this updated classic, art historian Dawn Ades addresses the aesthetic, social, and historical implications of the varied manifestations and uses of manipulated photographs.

Revered by artists, critics, and readers alike, this new edition is brought up-to-date to reflect technological developments and changes in visual culture, discussing the work of contemporary artists Kathy Bruce, Linder, Cold War Steve, and others. Photomontage also includes refreshed image reproductions as well as new full-color illustrations.
