Gilad Ophir‘s (b. 1957) photographs are well-known for their critical, examining nature and for referring to historical, social and institutional processes as well as to natural and artificial disintegrations, reflected in the landscape and in various types of architecture. Ophir, one of the most important photographers active in the past two decades in Israel, observes the development of social ideologies through the less-presentable aspects of architecture, i.e. in construction and collapse, as well as the relations between the means of power and regime with their products. In recent years, in addition to his dealing with the place, its crises and its cultural baggage, Ophir has developed new and autonomous processes of photographic work that combine notions of abstractions with the materiality of objects.
