Pop Art: Martin Parr
This photograph by Martin Parr is a good example of contemporary Pop Art as it depicts an everyday object. Everyday objects were often used as subject matter for Pop artists such as Andy Warhol’s ‘Campbell’s Soup Cans’.
Minimalism: Hiroshi Sugimoto
I feel this photo montage by David Hockney is very reminisent of the cubist style, especially that of Picasso’s work in which we see the same subject from multiple angles.
Postmodernism: Richard Billingham
This photo is from Richard Billingham’s series ‘Rays a Laugh’, and shows his Mum and Dad (Ray) eating dinner in their flat. As you can see, they are not wealthy which contrasted Conservative Britain, the country’s leader at the time.
Renaissance: Hiroshi Sugimoto
For this photo, Sugimoto photographed waxworks within a setting made to look like Johannes Vermeer’s ‘A Lady at the Virginal with a Gentleman’, which is from the Baroque movement, which came just after the Renaissance, so painting styles were quite similar.
