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.
