  • Catalogue Essay

    “I work with a large archive of pictures, not exclusively advertisements. Viewers tend to suggest that, and of course I understand the association. But by no means is the work based on ads. I collect photographs that I find problematic and curious, photographs that I fail to understand. They become an issue in the studio. I will have them hanging for months and try to figure them out. “Why in the world would anyone make this photograph?” is a question that is at the center many times. The solution, most of the time, is to answer with a picture I make. It’s a somewhat personal solution, meaning it is not really one, it’s an experience.”
    (Lassry quoted in S. Castets, “Art Seen: Splitting Image,” VMan Magazine, April 12, 2009)
