The Land Of Lost Toys
2003 – 2007
I was drawn to work on this project when I came across a tricycle on a street in Jafa, Israel. The tricycle brought back memories of my childhood and I wondered about the child who had owned it and lost it.
I decided to look for other lost toys. I was attracted to toys that I sensed had memories worth being cherished, and I wanted to give something back to them. All the toys in this series were made between 1920 - 1970 and were found in different countries around the world. The land of lost toys series was featured in international and local magazines (see in press). and a few of the images were sold at Barneys NY at a special limited edition.
The well used appliances exited my imagination and I knew that I wanted to capture not only the stories that were told, but also the form and character that the appliances took on themselves.
Most appliances in this series were made between 1940 - 1970 and were found in different countries around the world.
Animals - 2008
This series was created with the birth of my first son. I felt like creating a fantasy world.
