My name is Elad Lassry.
00:34
This is my small and comfy studio in Los Angeles
00:39
on a sunny day and I'm gonna show you some of my work.
00:46
Most of my work is being made here.
00:50
Right now I'm working on some collages
00:54
like this piece that I just made.
00:57
I'm basically interested in finding out
01:01
what is a picture now or what is a picture
01:05
from my understanding what a picture could be.
01:09
I never really have a body of work
01:11
even though I make bodies of work,
01:14
they're not a traditional body of work
01:16
in the sense that they're not surrounding
01:20
a concept that gets wrapped up.
01:22
There is really no beginning and end.
01:26
There's actually an ongoing project
01:30
that just keeps unfolding.

01:57
and some of the photos are here.
02:01
I'm gonna show this mushroom photograph
02:05
that I'm still working on and I'm still deciding
02:11

02:14
