Michael Bennett is a British photographer. He studied fine art at Leeds University and subsequently worked as a photomontage artist. Since 1965, Bennett has used photomontage - combining fragments of various images - to make satirical or political comments. 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 inexpensive and widespread distribution. In 1989, his work featured in ‘The Satiric Verses’ in the magazine Private Eye.
