For more than twenty years, Orna Wertman has been making assembled landscapes through the technique of photo collage. From a distance, her landscapes appear as depictions of a single location. Upon closer examination, however, they prove to be a combination of two different landscapes-adjoined by visible caesura- in witch the photographic perspectives never meet up

Orna Wertman is an artist/photographer. Since 2008 she publishes books, mainly conceptual photography.
Some of the books are printed in a printing office (250-500 copies) and some are in a limited edition.
Each publication has a Special Edition of 15-20: a book plus a printed photo or an original photo collage.
