My name is Yael Gesser, born 1977 in Israel. As a teen, I spent four years abroad with my family. I was fascinated by a world so different from mine, yet I felt great alienation. This experience had a great influence on my perspective. At age 20, I moved to Jerusalem to study and received a BSc from the Hebrew University. Afterwards, I decided to pursue my dream and study video and photography in the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. Since my graduation I participated in various group exhibitions of video art in Israel. In addition, I am currently working in the photography department of a major Israeli newspaper.
