(Hockney called them 'Joiners', so if he was the first person to ever do it, then they are called Joiners, whether you like it or not).
A Bigger Splash (1967), Tate Collection, London.
In the early 1980s, Hockney began to produce photocollages, which he called "joiners," first of Polaroid prints and later of 35mm, commercially processed color prints. Using varying numbers of Polaroid snaps or photolab-prints of a single subject Hockney arranged a patchwork to make a composite image. One of his first photomontages was of his mother. Because these photographs are taken from different perspectives and at slightly different times, the result is work that has an affinity with Cubism, which was one of Hockney's major aims – discussing the way human vision works. Some of these pieces are landscapes such as Pearblossom Highway #2, others being portraits, e.g. Kasmin 1982, and My Mother, Bolton Abbey, 1982.
It's called a 'fuck getting a bigger lens just take loads of small pics and fucking stick them all together' technique
The term "Panography" can also be used to describe this.
It's called "change the settings in every shot so there's no hope of this looking like anything but a mess".
Ye digital phillistines.
I knew it was something else - panography is what I was thinking but just couldn't remember.
