I made this body of work while wandering across the streets of Tel Aviv in the late summer nights.
This is preferable time for a night bird like me. I try to reveal the magic which is over the city in the night -streets and moving objects look so different than during the day. People become ghosts, some funny and happy, some sad and lonely. Shadows hide secrets , motion is blurred. In day time the city is loud and chaotic, in late night mysterious and dreamy – that’s the way I like it and wish to share this with the viewer. I photograph black and white on many occasions but prefer the night to be colorful.
