    Thumbs up Jerusalem leper hospital photo exhibition

    An amazing photo exhibition at the Tel-Aviv Museum of Art,
    also at Andrea Meislin Gallery, NY, I have seen it last week on my visit to Israel, here's a part of the text from the exhibit:

    Yairi photographs the leper house with a digital video camera in still mode, constructing the image from thousands of frames. The pictures are taken in the course of several hours, during which the artist slowly and accurately documents every detail in the space from a single position, like the viewer's observation movement upon entering the space. He selects details which he then combines into a final unified photographic image containing a wealth of information, one that no single still photograph can contain. Thus, in fact, Yairi overcomes the temporal and spatial limitations of conventional photography.

    The artist's name is Yuval Yairi. Amazing.

    Default Forevermore -the leper home

    I have seen this exhibit at Andrea Meislin Gallery in NY June this year,
    it is beautiful and interesting in technique and subject.
    I read the review in ARTNEWS, but I still don't understand exactly the process
    -how does Yairi combine still-video frames into one huge piece of work, with such sharpness? Also the atmosphere, the light, the perspectives of these spaces, it's like watching someones dream.
    You can't get the right impression from the small images on the website,
    some of the works are over 80 inch wide (and still sharp), and look like paintings, only when you look closer you can see small frames, like a kind of digital brush-strokes.

    I wish to learn more about the work of Yuval Yairi if anyone has more info.
