Tamir Sher

Masters on 45s by Tamir Sher.

In his series Masters on 45s, Sher placed reproduced images of classic paintings on a turntable and photographed them at different speeds, creating a contemporary spin on the classics. The new version retains the same colors of the original piece and a vague resemblance of the image, but the blur of the spin makes them look hypnotic and surreal.

Tamir Sher, born in 1966, is an Israelian artist, living and working in Tel Aviv. Sher has been engaged in photography his entire life, and has in his possession pictures he took and developed from as early as the age of eight.
