Elad Lassry

Elad Lassry was born in Tel Aviv, Israel and now works and lives in Los Angeles, CA.

Working with both found imagery from vintage magazines such as Life and Time, and his own slightly unnerving photographs, Lassry displays his images in frames (often sickly coloured) which are as important as the images themselves, since they immediately remove the photographs from any editorial context and make them singular, powerful pieces. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what’s old and what’s new imagery, since he shoots his own photographs like cheesy promotional headshots or outtakes from early computing manuals. “I’m fascinated by the collapse of histories,” says Lassry. “And the confusion that results when there is something just slightly wrong in a photograph.” -An Other
