Leigh Orpaz
Leigh Orpaz, born 1977, is an Israeli photographer based in Tel Aviv. Orpaz holds a Master of Fine Arts degree, and has participated in many exhibitions, among them "Borderline/ Mirror like", a young artists exchange exhibition that was held in Taipei in 2008. Orpaz investigates dysfunction and disturbance in the reign of the well known. In her works, a dialectic movement is revealed where the familiar causes unease and the strange fascinates and exposes its hidden beauty. Orpaz's use of the photographic medium charges the most banal moments with magic. Using extreme color saturation and lighting, subject matter that could be classified as "cheap" or "trashy" is sublimated. The appalling becomes appealing.
