Visual dialogue between the artist and her memories of her father
Following the death of her father in 2014, photographer Dalia Johananoff Kenneth (b. 1960 in Israel) discovered a forgotten treasure of tens of thousands prints shot by him in the 1950’s and 1960’s, and self-developed in a tiny space turned into a darkroom at home. While sieving and scanning through his prints, she found photographic language sometimes incredibly compatible, other times foreign but always resonating within. The images, whether hers or her father’s, enable and compel her to revisit their relationship, and her identity as a woman and an artist. Using visual sentences, timeless fragmented collages, Mistaken Memories. A Love Letter ToMy Father portrays a platform of visual dialogue between the artist and her memories.

Program at the International Center of Photography (ICP), New York City.
