South Tel Aviv Night

The opening  of a new art gallery marks the slow transition of this older part of the city where many people from Africa live now. This area reminded me of Skid Row in Downtown L.A where I have had a studio in the nineties.

Kibbutz Dinning Halls

 Kibbutz Metzer 1950s
 Kibbutz Yakkum 1960s
Kibbutz in Emek Beit She'an 2009
With recent attention to Kibbutz architecture, the dinning halls were the central architectural creations to represent the communal dream. Today, many are not functioning any longer with some that have been left unattended and discarded like a shipwreck after a storm.
