Ori Gersht - Time After Time, 2007

“…Elaborate floral arrangements, based on a 19th-Century still-life painting by Henry Fantin-Latour, captured in the moment of exploding. 

Flowers, which often symbolize peace, become victims of brutal terror, revealing an uneasy beauty in destruction. This tension that exists between violence and beauty, destruction and creation is enhanced by the fruitful collision of the age-old need to capture reality and the potential of photography to question what that actually means.”
