New Issue - Cover Feature: Tel Aviv
Photograph by Dudy Dayan
Tel Aviv is the second largest city in Israel and one of the most modern, vibrant and secular cities in the world. To take a plunge into this highly fascinating city, the name of which means ‘Hill of Spring’ in Hebrew, we turned to three creatives who call Tel Aviv their home.
Ido Biran is a photographer who extensively documents the daily life of the city through his Instagram project Tel-Avivi. In fact, he also conducts tours to help people unearth some hidden treasures of the city, like street art in completely unexpected places. Photographer Dudy Dayan feels that he has a love-hate relationship with the city but its character makes him feel alive. Both Ido and Dudy have made the city their playground – most of their work is either derived from or deeply inspired by their observations and experiences in Tel Aviv.
