Dudy Dayan’s body of work “Scoptophilia”. The gallery has been renowned, in recent years, as a home for cutting edge, young artists on the scene. Dayan is an established and valued fashion photographer, whose works have always been viewed as a different flavour in the Israeli photography world Dayan won the 2007 America-Israel cultural foundation’s excellence scholarship. Dayan has been working on this ongoing series since 2017. Focusing on young religious orthodox Jews, Dayan shows oft hidden traits of this community, its humanity. Dudy’s work is particularly striking in the sense of trust and intimacy with the subject. Often shy and recluse, orthodox Jews rarely let outsiders into their world. Dayan strips his subjects of their religious layers and exposes their raw beauty. Dayan truthful and honest lens embraces the subject beyond the social preconceptions, free of all expectation, judgement or commentary. As an artist, Dayan manages to make the extremely specific into the widely universal.
