Abandoned Structures Neglected By Man

The series Broken Houses by Ofra Lapid is based on photographs of abandoned structures neglected by man and destroyed by the weather. “I find these photos on the web while pursuing an amateur photographer from North Dakota who obsessively documents the decaying process of these houses. His photographs are used to create small scale models. Afterward, in the studio, the models are photographed again, omitted from their background and placed in gray. Eventually these are digital pigment print size 30×36 cm (16”x18”),” writes Lapid.

I like the idea that the images are taken by someone else, then reassembled and rephotographed. ❚
