Walking the streets of Tel Aviv looking for scenes to photograph, I’d stop and shoot interesting street art. When possible I waited a few moments at the scene to add a human element, and in one photograph the guy walking past became part of the artwork, it seemed to me. I think you can gain a bit of cultural insight by studying what people paint on the walls. What does the artwork tell you?
I love art work on walls, it tells you as much about the local population as the local cuisine does, it’s just a different element
great photo spread
Art not confined to canvas 🙂 nice shots…
Love street art! Fascinating images…I especially love the third one and the last one.
Hey Ruth, appreciate that. I wasn’t sure about the last one initially, but a friend was helping me edit one day and was like, you’ve got to include it. I’m glad you liked it.
Love these. The image of barriers hanging on the wall reminded me of Banksy’s famous West Bank barrier pieces: http://arts.theguardian.com/pictures/0,8542,1543331,00.html
oh yes, you’ll find a banksy one in here also…
Tel Aviv, What an interesting place to visit. These photos are as unique as the place!
Yes, Tel Aviv is a really cool city…
Really, really great. Loved each picture.
Such vibrant minds in the city, are they all in close proximity to each other?
Yeah, most of these were made in the general area of Jaffa Port and a few were found in the Neve Tzedek neighborhood which is adjacent to it. For the lover of architecture there are some beautiful old homes in the area too.
Thanks for letting know where they are! 🙂 Have a great week ahead!
“Even Walls Have Ears” the walls hear the upheavals of her people. That’s it. or I can interpret them in reverse:” Freedom Walls” where people express their feelings towards their country. So wonderful work..I love it.
Thanks, You’ve got some good metaphors there. I like seeing things in reverse sometimes…
Great collection. Thanks!
No, thank you!
