We are pleased to partner with photographer Gillian Laub on an edition of signed prints from her publication Testimony (Aperture, 2007). Proceeds from the prints will go directly toward supporting the ACLU’s mission to reunite immigrant families, as well as Aperture’s mission to support the artists telling these stories.


Photographing in Israel and Palestine, Gillian Laub produced a series of portraits of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Haifa, Tel Aviv, Ramallah, Nablus, and other locations in the region, who were personally affected by the geopolitical context in which they live. Driven by her commitment to excavate the commonalities of human experience in a zone marred by seemingly irrevocable aggression and prejudice, Laub’s photographs show the resilience, pride, defiance, vulnerability—and most astonishing of all, optimism—of the people affected in these crises.


GILLIAN LAUB's portraits have appeared in the New York Times MagazineNewsweek, Time, and the New Yorker. Laub graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in comparative literature, before studying photography at the International Center of Photography. She is represented by Bonni Benrubi Gallery, New York.
