Elad Lassry

October 23, 2008

I seem to be finding my favorite artists in Interview now.  Nothing wrong with that.

In the November issue, there’s a great little article about Elad Lassry.  The majority of Lassry’s work revolves around the alteration of appropriated stock photography.  He states, “I’m fascinated by the collapse of histories and the confusion that results when there is something slightly wrong in a photograph.”  Lassry takes commercial shots from the 70s and 80s, and then he distorts the viewer’s perception by using double exposures, blurs and stark colors.  The results are stunning.
