EYE CANDY

Rear Window


Since 1998, Barry Frydlender has been pointing his camera out of the window of his studio, which overlooks a bustling intersection between the Israeli cities of Tel Aviv and Jaffa. In his new exhibition at New York’s Andrea Meislin gallery, the photographer has digitally stitched together different scenes shot over the years into eight seamless pictures that, although originally documentarian, now represent complete fiction. It’s an especially provocative stance in a region where point of view can be everything.

“Yaffo – Tel Aviv” is on view through June 21 at New York’s Andrea Meislin Gallery, 534 West 24th St.
