Reframed from a postcard, the image fragment Crossing Over (2014) by John Stezaker looks anew at an everyday object.


Exploring time and memory, the Crossing Over series frames seemingly minor details, such as the figures passing on a street corner or conversing on a park bench, as well as the marks left by the physical movement of the images themselves.

 

Building upon the corresponding The 3rd Person Archive series, the image fragments in this series are collated in the volume John Stezaker: Crossing Over for the first time.

 

Contained within a custom-made, cloth-bound clamp case, the edition includes Stezaker's monograph alongside a unique image fragment, Crossing Over (2014), which has been specifically chosen and hand-finished by the artist.
