Ofra Lapid was born in 1982 and received a BA in art education from Ha’midrasha School of Art in Tel-Aviv. Her series Broken Houses was shot in her studio in Tel-Aviv, but is based on photographs by an amateur photographer in North Dakota whose images depict abandoned buildings, destroyed by weather and neglected. Lapin uses his photographs to construct small-scale models of the decayed buildings, which she then photographs against a solid gray background. Her work has been exhibited locally.
