A film about David Hockney's incredible experimental technique: the joiner photographs. Learn more about this pioneering concept!
David Hockney is unquestionably one of the most passionate and versatile experimental artists on the contemporary scene. In the late 1970s the British artist developed a pioneering concept which also changed his perspective on painting – his "joiners." In this film, the artist himself talks about this photographic approach, a kind of Cubism-inspired photocollage which explores the space-time continuum. Hockney allows the viewer to share in the creative "joiner" process and leads us step by step into the universe of his artistic creativity.
