Same experience, two extremes

Last Thursday was an interesting day. It started in Jerusalem and ended in Tel Aviv, Israel’s two largest cities. They both make me feel like a tourist most of the time.

The day started with a random encounter of the Muchtar of the Assyrians in Israel (google it)- a tailor and a lovely person who was more than willing to talk and share. Then, a meeting with the vice chairman of the Waqf in Jerusalem (google it), also a lovely man who was keen on talking about the conflict and his eagerness for tranquility. Then, some Humus, some views, some more people- the usual for the holy city.

Tel Aviv had its “White Night” that same day- a bunch of events and performances that took place all around the city. Somehow (and only god knows how) they got Nouvelle Vague (youtube them) to play in front of a crowd of no more than a 1000 people in a little square in Tel Aviv. They were amazing (and I had no clue they’re all former models and such- good surprise!).

Workers

I’ve shot in a few events lately, where my main focus was on the design and decoration. However, from time to time, there are moments that I just can’t let pass by me without capturing.
