Two Portraits

Two portraits from Saalame St. Tel Aviv. Lior is a young man who is doing a one year voluntary community service in Jerusalem before joining the IDF. On his way to a classical piano concert which he is also  playing.  Yossi emigrated to Israel in the sixty from Romania. A very busy electrician specializing in air conditioning. Jokingly he told me that the real boss is his wife.

Seeing The World for the First Time

Couple of days ago I have had a long talk with my artist friend G. in his south Tel Aviv studio.  It was around six in the afternoon when I stepped out into the street.  The strong summer directional light and the influence of our talk which centered on the act of perception charged me with a feeling of as if I was seeing the world for the first time.
Looking at these photographs I can clearly perceive that they are able to capture what I was after ( and them some) which was the complexity and intricacies present at some of the most mundane environments.
