Yaron Lapid diligently collects found photos from English family archives. He constructs and then deconstructs their meaning by using strategies of selective grouping and masking to allow or deny the viewer straight-forward observational
rights into the images.
As the images get re-interpreted through the eyes of a non - native, Lapid questions, disrupts and navigates our viewing so that we are forced to examine these images differently. We find our eyes wandering to details we may have previously
overlooked, recognising emotions, relations and narratives.
Moving between the artistic and the documenting act, Lapid's bold use of masking underscores the fragility and construct of these images whilst exploring the nature of time itself and its role within photography.
