Ori Gersht is a fine art photographer born in Tel Aviv who lives in England. His work engages the grand themes of life, death, violence, and beauty. His photographs and films of the past two decades transcribe images of sites of historical significance. Through the artist’s focused attention and treatment, his images evoke the emotional resonance of what has transpired—most often, violence, and, more significantly, the ghosts of war’s most egregious detritus, its refugees. His striking images of exploding organic matter are shown in galleries on a grand scale in full vibrant color.
