Summary
The career of one of Britain's greatest painters tells us as much about his skill with a camera as his facility with a brush. In this program, David Hockney invites viewers on a journey of discovery that traces the evolution of his photographic work-from his initial experiments in the 1970s through the high point of his photo collage period, exemplified in Nude, featuring Theresa Russell, and another crowning achievement, Pearblossom Highway. The film was produced with unprecedented access not only to the artist himself but to his huge photographic archive, much of which has never been shown publicly. Hockney's use of photography in related media, such as drawing, painting, fax art, and photocopying, is also explored in detail.
