The Bell Tolls

“I’m originally from Nazareth Illit, Israel, a very diverse city, where Jews, Christians and Muslims live together. Since I was born on Christmas Eve my parents used to invite our Christian neighbor who used to dress up as Santa and he would always come bearing gifts. In the photo my mom is holding the present he gave me and me, terrified in her arms. Perhaps it was the fake forehead that broke me.”

“Me and my sibling in the late 80’s after my brother got home from boot camp. I remember my mother had bought a giant frog for Xmas but why it was chosen to be part of our sibling portrait shot I have permanently blocked from memory.”

Clown Under

“Perth, Australia in the late 80’s. I’m the littlest and pictured with my 2 older brothers and my older sister. We all have no idea who the clown is or why he is even there…just so random!”
