Kaddish draws on the contradictions of loss which reside among the mundane and absurd elements of everyday life. The oldest picture in the book is of my great uncle in Rome in 1947. The most recent is of my shadow on a wall in Germany in 2023.

The project gathers images collected and saved over the past 20 years, and functions as an amorphous, ambient scroll of information: pictures from my archive, texts, emails, images from family albums, home movies, screengrabs and iPhone photos. The project probes a pendulum of personal grief, couched among the anxieties of historical memory. It is an unstable, living archive which traces a meandering path from New York to Germany, Israel and Palestine.
