David Hock­ney might be the most renowned ex­po­nent, but photo col­lage has been ex­plored by many other artists.

Thomas Kell­ner cre­ates his col­lages by shoot­ing a roll of 35mm film, crop­ping in to each part of a scene from one frame to the next. The en­tire roll is then laid out as a con­tact sheet (like the im­age be­low).

Renowned por­trait pho­tog­ra­pher Rankin asked his celebrity por­trait sit­ters to chop up and re­ar­range them to cre­ate eclec­tic self-por­traits in his se­ries ‘De­stroy’.

Tak­ing join­ers into a huge scale, the Ja­panese artist So­hei Nishino cre­ates hugely de­tailed cityscapes made up of thou­sands of photos taken over sev­eral months.
