Mirror Stage, 2012
In Mirror Stage, Ilit Azoulay combines images of a building taken at various angles and vantage points to create a new, digitally fabricated interior. The panorama is part of her series Imaginary Order (2008-2017). The project focused on the renovation of a well-known Brutalist-style building in the Israeli town of Zichron Ya'Akov. The artist photographed the structure over the course of seven years as it was transformed from a convalescent home into an art center and luxury hotel. The building's shift in function paralleled socio-political changes as Israel moved away from socialism to a capitalist economic model. Azoulay's re-creation merges elements of past, present, and future, to fabricate a never-to-be realized photographic plan.
Refugees and migrants arriving on Lesbos Island, Greece (2015)
"The thin line between reality and performance, documentary and art, fascinates Alex Majoli. In 2015, he traveled to Lesbos, a small island off the coast of Greece, to document the crisis of refugees fleeing conflicts in North Africa and the Mediterranean. Here, artificial lighting creates a scene that resembles a film still, but the emotions that animate the faces of his subjects are genuine. This series was intended to underscore Europe's inability to isolate itself from the suffering taking place across the Mediterranean."

Image of man seated on blue wooden chair in front of window. He is wearing jeans and a wrinkled shirt with the sleeves rolled up. In his right hand, he holds a partially eaten apple. Fruit (pear, strawberry, kiwi, plum, and apple) is laid out on the small white table beside him - each with a large bite taken out of them. Near the lower right is a plate filled with fruit next to a wooden post. This is one image printed across three separate sheets/mounts with narrow white margins.
