Dafna Talmor - Constructed Landscapes

Constructed Landscapes’ is an ongoing project by photographer Dafna Talmor that consists of landscapes created through a process of collaged and montaged colour negatives shot in different locations. While reconfiguring the images, she generates a space that defies specificity; transient landscapes that blur place, memory, and time in a conflation of reality and the imaginary. These reference historical processes, such as early pictorialist tendencies of combination printing and modernist experiments with the materiality of film, yet her work also engages with contemporary discourses on manipulation, the analogue/digital divide, and the effects these have on photography’s status.
