A photo for every day in 2011

Time Lighbox has given us (I think) the best of the 'Year in Photos' collections around. It is encyclopedic in scope, and includes plenty of incredible photography and jogs your memory of those events you may've possibly forgotten from all that time ago...


Photomontager: Toshiko Okanoue

Was looking at utopian and dystopian fantasies using collage on the Phaidon website.
This girl's were particularly interesting, more dystopian-y.. Born in 1928, grew up in Tokyo, she went to fashion school where she was introduced to a traditional Japanese collage style, and then to Max Ernst's collages. Then, in 1953, she held her own exhibition, which included 50 or so collages (below are a few off Google).
After marrying in 1957 her collage production ceased, and it was only until 2000, aged 72 that she held 'Okanoue Toshiko Photo Collage: Droplets of Dreams' at the Dai-Ichi Mutual Insurance South Gallery in Tokyo.
