A collection of David Hockney's photographs taken from the late 1960s up until 1982. The images are snapshots of friends, records of travel, inspiration for his artworks and finally, artworks in themselves in the form of his photo collages. The photographs are taken from the hundred or so albums that the artist kept. The subjects include Cecil Beaton, Peter Schlesinger, Celia Birtwell, Christopher Isherwood, Rudolf Nureyev and, of course, Hockney himself, garbed in his inimitable style.
