From Was It A Dream

Ayala Gazit is an Israeli photographer based in Brooklyn. In her work she combines family photographs, old documents and her own images to explore the history of her family. For her project You Don’t Say she travelled to Israel, England and Germany to learn the story of her family during World War II. Her newest project, is called “Was it a Dream” and it’s being exhibited next month at the The Ballarat Foto Biennale in Victoria, Australia. The project explores Ayala’s discovery, when she was twelve, that she had an older brother living in Australia with a family she had never met. Was it a Dream is Ayala’s journey to discover her brother, Australia, and a family she didn’t know she had.

I met with Ayala last week, right before she left for Australia, to talk about her very personal relationship with photography. We also talk about Ayala’s photographs of comedian and former SNL star Darrell Hammond. who Ayala spent a year with Darrell making images of the comedian on and off the stage.
