Since 1965 Michael Bennett has used photomontage - combining fragments of various images - to make a satirical or political comment. Uncle Cyril arriving for Tea, for example, was one of his first images, in which scale and incongruity are exploited to full comic effect. He has said that his "basic ideas are to manipulate images, to continually experiment, and to arrive at a satirical or humorous end which is mass published." In accordance with these aims, Bennett’s publications have included a series of postcards intended for cheap and widespread distribution.
