Ori Gersht

London, UK
Gersht’s photographic process uniquely incorporates specific environmental conditions with an awareness of memory, experience, and embedded history.

There is a defined relationship of this in how the photographic medium is engaged. With an understanding of the chemical and physical limitations of film, of which Gersht is never shy to push the boundaries of, that often turns out to be a more dimensional and resonant vehicle for portraying a mechanism of meaning through the imprint of time,
light, and phenomena that perhaps expose the capacity and limitations of human memory as well..
