Portraits Of Urban Decay

House 52 (Via)
Ofra Lapid is an Israeli Artist who lives and works in Tel Aviv. This series of beautiful miniature recreations were created by reinterpreting photographs another artist took of decaying structures and decrepit buildings in North Dakota.

Ofra uses the photographs to build architectural scale models of run down houses, abandoned warehouses, neglected structures etc. These models are then rephotographed and shown as evidence of time, and economical and social shifts on the urban mesh. In this case, this set of miniatures are based off of the midwest. Five more images after the break!
