Lori Ordover creates images of rudimentary scenes of daily life, landscapes and expressive portraits, Lori’s desire is to make strong, fearless, intriguing images—some images traditionally beautiful and others with a rougher, edgier aesthetic. Presently, Lori is working on a personal project, “Not Being Heard”, which is a study of her life growing up with a deaf parent.
Lori’s father, the inventor of the digital watch and a lover of technology, purchased a Konica camera for Lori in the early 70’s. He gave her confidence to be curious and not fear failure. As a result Lori has always felt comfortable creating many styles of images using various film types and alternative processes and exposure modes as well as different development techniques in her basement darkroom. This practice continues today as Lori looks for innovative ways to capture and process her work.
