David Hockney
[Artist, b. 1937, Bradford, England, lives in Bridlington, Yorkshire; London; and Los Angeles.]

 Ordinary photography, it seems to me, is obsessed with subject matter, whereas [my collages] are not principally about their subjects. Or rather, they aren’t so much about things as they are about the way things catch your eye. 
 All religions are about social control. The church, when it had social control, commissioned paintings, which were made using lenses and when it stopped commissioning images, its power declined, slowly. Social control today is in the media—and based on photography. The continuum is the mirrors and lenses.
