Reframing image fragments from postcards, John Stezaker’s series Crossing Over (2005–13) focuses on the incidental micro-narratives of life that are often overlooked in these everyday objects.

Celebrated artist John Stezaker is widely known for his innovative approach to found photographic imagery. Building upon the corresponding The 3rd Person Archive series, the image fragments in this volume span the history of postcard production. Moving from the Victorian era to the postwar period and black and white to colour imagery, Stezaker focuses on the female figure as well as notions of return and crossing back.

Exploring time and memory, Crossing Over 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.
