Conceptual and appropriation artist John Stezaker is known for his Surrealist-influenced collages crafted from found images manipulated and juxtaposed into new concordances. In his "Film Portrait" series beginning in the 1980s, slices of faces from movie star headshots are overlaid atop others to create disconcerting hybrids. Other sources include antique pornography, vintage postcards, and book illustrations, showing Stezaker's interest in workaday imagery forced to go beyond its essential purpose. In his "Unassisted Readymades" (1973-), he sets untouched images in new, unlikely angles.
