Portrait of a Street

Every Street Has a Soul

The second year of the ongoing TLV365 project, was dedicated to the streets of Tel-Aviv. Each week was focused on one street – its name, its spirit, its soul. I tried to capture it with a single artwork made out of six different photos – all taken in the same street on the same day.

I think of it as a kind of a portrait. Like in a human portrait, I hope that I succeeded in capturing the heart of each street and its uniqueness.

I invite you to join me in this visual journey to the streets of Tel-Aviv. I call it Portrait of a Street.
