Using digital technology, Barry Frydlender creates seamless panoramas out of dozens, sometimes hundreds, of photographs. In the resulting continuous images, patterns and people repeat, almost imperceptibly. His scenes—of intersections, cityscapes, beaches, and offices—at first appear realized in excruciating detail, but upon closer look, the viewer understands that these details have been inserted and overlapped, presenting a heightned world that is more detailed than our own. 


In 2007, Frydlender was the first Israeli artist to be given a solo show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. For the exhibition, which was titled “Place and Time,” he presented 10 large-scale photographs that took aim at contemporary politics in his native Israel.


Frydlender studied film and television at the University of Tel Aviv, graduating in 1980. His work is held in the collections of the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Jewish Museum in New York, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. He has been the subject of solo exhibitions in Israel, Europe, and the United States. He lives and works in Tel Aviv.
